Getting Comfy and Cozy With Math and Science!

Help me give my students a carpet where they can learn and forget about any difficulties of home life and basic tools for science, such as a magnifying glass, microscope, or a collection of rocks and fossils.

My Students

I am a second-year teacher at a small community school. I teach Math and Science at the 5th Grade level.

The majority of my students are from low-income households.

I have 20+ students who are diverse learners with different needs. Many of them find escape at school from their personal lives. This is why it is very important for me to a provide safe and welcoming environment for them. I want them to feel comfortable, excited, and open to new things and discoveries.

My students are always very excited to use technology during math and science classes, but unfortunately, their enthusiasm is often met with an overwhelming lack of resources. The staff at our school is extremely dedicated and work together to provide students with as many opportunities and resources as possible, but there is still so much that our classrooms need.

My Project

Every year math and science is being integrated with more technology, and engineering practices. I want to be able to give my students a chance to be successful with both subjects and prepare them for this new word without fear of technology.

Recently, I received a Smartboard for my classroom, but my room lacks a carpet where I can gather my students in front of the Smart board or show them math concepts using math manipulatives.

They have to sit on the tile floor and often refuse to do so.

Also I don’t have any basic tools for science, such as a magnifying glass, microscope, or a collection of rocks and fossils.

Students are tired of traditional methods of learning, they need new ways of gathering information around them, and technology is the best way to do it!
