My Students

The group of kindergarten students at our Title I school are very curious and eager to learn. We would love to engage their learning by providing them with a fun and exciting hands-on experience!

Since it can be costly, many of our families cannot afford to visit museums, zoos, aquariums or other fun places where learning comes to life.

Our group includes three whole kindergarten classes, including a small group of special needs children. Each student has their own unique way of exploring and learning about the world around them.

We have a diverse group of families. Some come from other countries, speak different languages, and come from a large variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. More than 60% of our students receive free or reduced lunch and many receive free backpack food every weekend as well.

My Project

Our littlest learners tend to be our most excited learners. Field trips offer a great extension to their learning. As much as we can research pumpkin and plant life cycles in books, there is no comparison to experiencing a day at a pumpkin farm.

Field trips provide a real life experience where students can extend what they have learned about plants and they gain a deeper meaning on the topic we have studied.

This trip provides the unique opportunity to explore new and exciting things outside of the classroom. Many of our students have never been to a pumpkin patch and light up at the idea of visiting a pumpkin farm where they can take a pumpkin home!
