My Students

My first grade students are a group that loves to learn! They are so inquisitive and amazed at new things. These students ask questions and push themselves to learn more about their topics.

These students love hands-on activities!

They learn so much by seeing and doing. They are excited to try and discover new things.

I enjoy working with these students. They exemplify kindness, caring, and perseverance. These students support one another and are anxious to help each other out. They help me want to learn more as well!

My Project

My students are naturally curious about the world around them. However, many of my students were amazed when we pulled vegetables from our raised garden beds. They had never seen vegetables come from the ground before. The grow lamps and planters will help keep plants growing in our classroom all year long.

Donations to this project will help my students better understand the needs of plants and how they grow.

We will be able to plant seeds, observe and monitor their growth, then see the fully grown vegetables at the end of the cycle. This will help students better understand where their food comes from!
