Mrs. Aronowitz from Murrieta CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Growing Student Centered Learners in Our Garden

My students need a convertible bench, planting pots, a bird feeder, wind chimes, a green house, a trellis, and a potting bench to help create a student centered outdoor learning environment in our school garden.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students attend a homeschool, hybrid charter school. They meet with me twice a week and then take what they have learned in the classroom and expand on it at home with their family. My students are passionate about science, history, art, math, reading, and writing. They love expressing themselves in many different ways. My students are very active, creative, and resourceful second and third graders.

They love to share with me their ideas for how to make our classroom better and inspire our always-changing, positive learning environment.

My students love to learn about the world around them and how to apply what they have learned in the classroom. Our classroom is made up of a community of learners who love to explore new ideas. My students foster my own love of learning and always bring new ideas and projects into the classroom for us to study with each other.

My Project

My students love to learn about plants and how to grow their own food. They also love to be outside. We currently have a basic school garden area with seven raised garden beds but nowhere to sit and no seedlings to plant in our raised beds.

My students would love to have a comfortable and inviting outdoor space where they can learn, read and relax while at school.

I want my students to feel as though they're school is their home away from home and I want them to feel inspired to imagine, dream, and learn both inside and outside the classroom.

I would love for my students to be able to plant their own seedlings using the planting pots and watch them sprout in our very own greenhouse. My students would then transplant their seedlings into our school raised garden beds. All students at our school would be invited to come and sit in the garden and watch our new plants grow, taste the healthy food we would produce, listen to the beautiful wind chimes, and watch the local birds come to eat.
