My Students

I teach in a Title I, K-5 magnet school that educates almost 700 students each year. The students at my school come from a wide range of family dynamics. Some live in traditional households, while others live with single parents or extended family. My students' economic situations are just as varied as their family dynamics and more than sixty percent of our school qualifies for free lunch.

A large percentage of our school population consists of English language learners.

Seventy-five percent of my class speaks more than one language and often English is not spoken when they are at home. Regardless of these factors, every one of my students always possesses a passion for learning, exploring, and creating.

My Project

We just received a new science curriculum, "Push, Pull, Go", that is sure to be a favorite with my students, based on the amount of fun the teachers had at training! While the kit provided has fun activities I find that the one big book provided is not enough literature for a multi week unit that is considered "integrated literacy" in my school. The additional books will provide more opportunities for students to learn and make connections through stories.

My students crave hands on experiments!

Our new kit uses Kid K'Nex building pieces to build ramps and swings. I would like additional pieces so that my students can build multiple structures and this would also ensure we have plenty of extra pieces in case some are lost. The cups and straws, combined with other items already in our STEM bins, will allow us to conduct more force and motion experiments with everyday items. Poster tape will allow us to display vocabulary words and easily remove them from the poster when needed. These materials will ensure that science during our integrated literacy block is hands on, engaging, and fun.
