Help me give my students whiteboards for group work, an easel to display work, and some wobble chairs.
In my classroom I have students that are so eager to learn. I tell them real-life stories that are connected to science. Whether it be a short video clip or a news article, it really pulls them into the lesson. Anything hands-on that they can manipulate totally sparks their interests.
My students are very diverse and come from all different ethnic backgrounds.
They love music and they love to laugh and have fun. They are extremely creative and enjoy labs. Some of my students are extremely shy, while others are not. When we do labs and hands-on activities is when they come out of their shells and participate in class. It is amazing to see their faces when they are excited about learning
My students will be using the resources for various reasons. One reason is to make the ideas come to life. I try to have a project for every major unit where students are able to show what they know by making models and other visuals. For instance, they will make models of human body systems before comparing two different systems. Afterwards, they will constantly be able to see these models hanging around the room as visual reminders. Having the iPad for research and glue for making the displays is essential to completing these projects.
I also have many ESL students and iPads allow them to look up information in their own language so they can participate as equal members of their groups.
I also often have students work in groups to show their learning, and the large whiteboards will allow all group members to participate in the group presentations. Thank My active students who need to fidget will be able to stay focused while using the wobble chairs. All of these different experiences will provoke higher order thinking and academic success.
Exposing my students to the wonderful world of science is my number one goal. Making learning fun and exciting is what these donations will provide for my classroom. My reluctant learners and my special needs students will be more willing to participate, and it will give them the motivation and courage to try a little harder.
