My Students

My students come from a high poverty community in which every day basic necessities are hard to come by. When they enter my classroom I want them to not have to worry about life at home and enjoy the day filled with music, movement and exploration. We learn through play and every activity is child driven.

I strive to make their school experience a positive one by enriching them into learning centers that are hands on and that they can relate to in everyday life.

My Project

I have students age 3 and 4 years old. We learn through play. The science center I am requesting will provide my students will an ability to touch, feel and hear about science in a way that they have never had.

My classroom is child driven which allows the children to pick and chose what they would like to play with whether it be blocks, sand table, library area and now with your donation the science area will come to life.

The children will be able to see the bugs, fossils, animals and learn about them through hands on learning.
