WOW! What amazing, resilient, wonderful 3rd-grade students I learn from each day! These children are in a very high-need school, a lot of them facing challenges that would bring some of us to our knees. I gaze out each day, amazed they are sitting in my classroom and draw from their strength and incredible energy!

All of my students are very hands-on learners. The more interactive the learning, the more they learn and retain! These students deserve the best I can give them, and this is not textbook, paper/pencil type learning. Successful educational experiences are key for every student, especially those experiencing negative life situations. Education is key to motivate them to move up and out of their environments, knowing they have nothing but options!

To help empower these wonderful children, we start the day running and we never stop! We keep our whole selves into everything! This alleviates boredom, behavior problems and negative learning! Science is something they all enjoy, but unfortunately with tight budgets we don't have funding to expand with the science in the lower grades. We try to make it as fun and exciting as possible and we're usually pretty successful! Building these cars as part of our simple machines curriculum is something I know they would love! They could compare the three different types of cars and we could explore all the various ways in which they move, it would be wonderful. Knowing they built them would empower them to continue to explore future possibilities of exploration!!

Your help will ensure that these wonderful students will achieve important learning strategies and it will also enhance their love for learning! Allowing students a variety of fun and exciting ways to explore will only increase their chances for success!!
