My Students

My students come to school eager to learn. These children come from low income families who appreciate and value teachers. It is important to keep children excited and passionate about learning new topics every day.

Children with smiles on their faces are the best thing any teacher can see when coming to school.

Preschool is the first step to creating a positive environment at school for children. It is a new transition and can be difficult to get used to. Luckily we have marvelous teachers who enjoy what they do and help create a warm, caring, and hands-on environment where children feel free to explore through play every day.

My Project

My students have been actively watching the trees grow leaves and focusing on how the seasons change our natural world. They wonder about how plants grow and how flowers and vegetation come about. We have read many books to help them understand this process but what better way to learn about this than to do it hands on. This garden box and soil will give us a boost in the right direction.

Learning about plants and how to take care of our earth is a great investment to a brighter future for everyone.

Our children will not only learn how plants grow, but they will learn how to take car of these plants and what it takes to keep them alive. Science is all about watching things happen before you. After giving them the right tools and knowledge, our children will plant, nurture, and prune their garden all by them selves.

The children in my classroom do not get this type of opportunity at home and it is always nice to give them these opportunities while at school.

Thank you in advance for allowing our children to learn through science.
