My Students

The students I am creating this project for go to school just north of Boston. They are inquisitive and very visual learners. They are excited about learning and enjoy reading narratives, opinion pieces and non-fiction texts about animals, cultures, or new experiences. They are also ecstatic when they get to use any sort of technology in the classroom, or school.

My students are something special and I encourage them to be the best they can be, I want them to know more about the world while they read new engaging books or while practicing their skills and writing on new technology!

My 3rd grade class is about building relationships and connections that are meaningful. We work hard on being kind to one another and practice different ways of showing respect. We try to not only speak kindly to others, but to ourselves as well. They also work on becoming independent individuals who are responsible for their own actions. We are very excited to be able to have some new items in our classroom!

My Project

These materials will help allow my students to access our science curriculum with a hands on learning approach. We will be able to each grow our own plants, learn about their life cycle and track each plants progress.

My students love to be engaged in their learning and using these materials to grow their own plants will only enhance their interest in science.

It is easy to read about plants in a book or online, but to actually be able to get their hands dirty and be responsible for their own plant is a very different learning experience. Students will be able to have a choice in seeds and grow anything from herbs, cucumbers or pumpkins.
