My students are from Oklahoma. They are extremely FEARLESS, CREATIVE, COURAGEOUS, SMART, and so much more! They are fearless when it comes to learning new things. These children deserve the best! They may not come from the best homes or neighborhoods, but that doesn't mean that they can't learn to be the best at what they do! The children that I work with are primarily children that come from low income families. I want to show these children that they do not have to repeat that cycle that they can and will be better than where they came from.
Right now they are all fighting over the math and science things that we have.
We only have a few things per classroom and sometimes those things we have to share. I would love to be able to provide these math and science things for them to help promote school readiness, and a love for math and science. I love the fact that no matter where they come from, or how their home life is they come ready to learn!
Most children find math and science boring. This is my first year as a teacher and I want to show them that math and science can be fun! Math and science can be tough to teach. I believe with these books, vehicles and hands-on items, it will make math and science so much easier to teach, and most importantly the kids will have fun learning. I want to teach them counting games and science experiments. I want them to know what machines do and how engineering affects our lives. I want the children to understand how to fix things and problem solve to get the right answers. Children who have fun while learning, retain so much more information. Right now is when children are learning and retaining more things than any other time in their life. So if I can show them that math and science is fun, then maybe that will stick with them as they further their education.
