My Students

I teach first graders with LOTS of energy! They are very motivated, anxious to begin each day to learn not only from me but also each other, and they are curious about how our world works and how they fit into it. They come from a variety of backgrounds at home, as well as a variety of educational backgrounds and needs.

I have students working at grade level, below grade level, and above first grade level!

Each child is unique and growing every day! Regardless of their differences, you can feel.

My Project

The materials we are requesting are essential for this STEM project. First, we will need a seven egg incubator to hatch the eggs in. The incubator will provide the warmth and moisture the eggs need to hatch. The incubator will also allow the children to watch and experience the 21 day cycle from egg to chick. Secondly, we will need a brooder for the chicks to stay warm under after they have hatched. The brooder will provide warmth, as the mother would, to the newly hatched chicks. The chicks will be able to sit under the brooder to say warm. First graders learn best by seeing first hand what is happening!

We want our students to be able to experience the miracle of life and how chicks adapt to their environment to survive!

This will be an experience the children would not be able to get outside of our classroom. We want to provide learning that is motivational and engaging!

These materials will allow our students to become active scientists in our classroom! They will also enable the students to actually DO the experimentation and make predictions as to what is going to happen each day. The students will be able to connect their writing to the process of the chicks hatching by journaling about what they can see happening and what they predict will happen next. This will improve their school lives by making our days even more "egg"citing and giving the students something more to look forward to seeing and experiencing when they come to school each day!
