My Students

In my classroom there is a lot of creativity going on in math, language arts, and creative arts. One activity my students enjoy is I.W.T. (independent work time). During this time, students have an opportunity to read books, work at a language arts center or a science center.

I have been a teacher for twenty-eight years.

Currently, I have twenty-four kindergarten students in the Los Angeles Unified School District. My school is in a multicultural environment. Language Arts is my passion and I am always trying to incorporate fine arts whenever my resources allow me.

My Project

My students need one set of See it Grow Plant Lab, a Science Viewer, and a Life Cycle Sequencing Kit. One thing that would really enhance our learning centers and my small group instruction is the "See It Grow Plant Lab". Students can see seeds grow right before their eyes! They can see the roots and the plant when it starts to sprout. After observing this, the students will be able to draw and illustrate what they see. They can then write a simple scientific sentence. A "Science Viewer" is another hands-on, interesting activity that will keep my students engaged and excited about writing. These view finders give students a 3-Dimensional, up close look at the wonders of nature.

Your donations will improve our learning centers and provide constructive activities for the students.

With these new materials in our class my students will now have access to better resources that creates a fun learning environment, challenge their minds and helps them develop the skills they need to elevate successfully in their educational experience.
