My Students

Throughout the year, I have made it a priority to take my students outside as often as possible. Outdoor learning is an amazing experience for both the students and myself. Outdoor learning promotes engaging, hands-on students who have a LOVE for learning! Outdoor learning also gives students a real-world perspective, and teaches students how to apply academic concepts to their every day lives.

In order to create an amazing learning experience for my students, I have been working on creating engaging outdoor lessons that integrate reading, science, writing, and math.

There are tons of amazing lessons that incorporate the outdoors. The only problem is, many of these require resources that I do not have!

With this donorschoose project, I am hoping to gain resources that I can incorporate into my outdoor lessons. The resources that I am looking for include read-aloud books, measurement tools thermometers, yard sticks, tape measures, etc.) and investigation props. These resources will enhance student learning and engagement.

Thank you for your support in advance!

My Project

The books will be added to reading, math, writing, and science lessons. Adding fun, engaging stories to any lesson creates classroom discussion, and a chance for inquiry.

Thermometers and tape measures will be used for science investigations and math practices.

With these materials, students will observe, question, explore, and engage in their surroundings. As a teacher, I become a facilitator, and students take charge of their own learning. Outdoor learning is something my school is passionate about. I believe that outdoor learning is a great way for students to teach the standards. I also believe that allowing students to explore outdoors engages them in real-world problem solving. My hope with these materials is to create amazing integrated lessons that allows my students to fall in love with learning!
