My Students

I teach fourth grade and have a wonderful group of students this year. I say that every year. My district has a large percentage of free and reduced lunch totaling 70% of our school.

This limits my students abilities to experience educational places and technologies.

Most of their experiences in these areas come to them in the form of classroom experiences and field trips. The picture I uploaded of my class is them using Google Expeditions Virtual Reality headsets to tour Yosemite, which we have been reading about. I hope that you will consider funding our classroom projects so that these students may grow and have the same opportunities as students not living in poverty.

Thank you.

My Project

Hello! Thank you for looking at my project. I would like to introduce my 4th graders to electricity through the hands on experience offered by Snap Circuits.

Snap Circuits have over 500 configurations and allow 4th graders to collaborate while learning about circuitry and electricity!

This is highly engaging and we do not have much in the way of scientific hands on materials. In my opinion, science should always be hands on so that children can manipulate the project and learn through touch.

I am asking for five kits so that my 28 students can work together in groups, as science is almost always a collaborative effort.

Thank you for considering my classroom! Your donations offer more to the students than can be expressed in words.
