My Students

My third grade class is a curious bunch. They love doing experiments and working with their hands. They are excellent scientists in the classroom. We make hypothesis, problem solve, and discover new things all the time.

In order to keep the learning alive we need funds for hands on activities and experiments.

I truly believe that working through problems with your hands makes a huge difference in understanding and comprehending the lesson.

Please support our third grade class at our school. Thank you for taking your time to read about us and donate.

My Project

The products that I selected will make a difference in my students learning by making the subjects more interactive and fun. When teaching a group of students it is always better for them to have hands-on material to manipulate in order to understand a concept.

By having an elapsed time flash cards students will be about to understand how time changes from one clock to another easily instead of trying to draw a clock or figure out the answer in their mind.

By having experimental science kits and books, Outdoor Science Lab for Kids, I can engage my students with examples of subjects we are learning about, like the solar system.

Basically we want to keep our students engaged and curious about our world. In our class we try to keep that spark of curiosity alive and to make it grow.
