Growing Veggies in KinderGARDEN!

My students need an indoor garden to grow vegetables and learn about plant life.

My Students

I am fortunate to have 19 students this year. My students are young and eager to learn. They are excited and inspired by technology and hands on learning. Several years ago, my school was destroyed in a massive fire. Our school has been rebuilt and so has our passion to seek out and integrate new technology, and active ways to learn, into our school.

The small class size gives me more freedom to explore new technology and use hands on activities to help my students move and learn.

For the past several years, my district has been hit hard with devastating cuts to education and a tax cap. The new state policies and mandates make it difficult to find extra money to explore and purchase new technology and active ways to inspire my students. My students need to have more movement with their learning.

My Project

This school year our classroom has had regular visits from our school resource officer. We are working together to help the children build a positive relationship with the police. After a recent visit by our school resource officer, we learned she loves to garden and grow her own vegetables.

Our classroom will be working with our police officer to grow vegetables this Spring.

Growing a garden together is a great way to help my students develop a more personal relationship with our local police officers. We are requesting the Miracle-Gro AeroGarden 7 LED Indoor Garden and seed pod kits to help build a bigger garden in our classroom.
