TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a composter and rain barrel to use in their vegetable garden so they can help make the planet healthier as they learn to be healthier themselves.
Despite a community with over fifty percent low-income families, our kids are ready, willing, and able to face any challenge and love to demonstrate their learning through their work every day.
With our new Montessori program, my classroom and outdoor learning environment will inspire students to explore, create, discover, and develop a life-long love of learning.
By focusing on the whole child with the adult serving as a guide to their learning, my kids are able to dive deeply into those areas that they want to study. Then by following their lead I can integrate their lessons with materials they're excited about and use those subjects as the basis of everything from reading, to writing, to math, and science. Each child has a learning path all their own. And they love it! (And so do I.)
My Montessori classroom integrates practical life into the daily curriculum which includes an outdoor learning environment and vegetable garden. We are requesting a composter and rain barrel to use in their vegetable garden so they can help make the planet healthier as they learn to be healthier themselves.
My student gardeners will be environmentalists as they use reclaimed water from the rain barrel and recycled organic material from the composter to provide irrigation and fertilizer to their vegetables.
They will learn the importance of respect for themselves as they grow healthy food for their own growing healthy bodies. At the same time they will demonstrate respect for the environment as they discover how to reduce, reuse, and recycle instead of adding to the current pollution and waste that our world suffers.
