My Students

My students are four years old, full of energy and a love for learning. Most come from low income families and many have IEP's that give them additional support in speech, fine motor, gross motor, and social skills. Many of my students and families are Spanish speaking or bilingual.

My class this year are kind, compassionate kids that care about the people in their school family.

They have shown a real interest in insects and signs of spring this month.

My Project

When we ask our students where lettuce or tomatoes come from they tell us Walmart. A very low percentage of our students have gardens at home or have been to a greenhouse or farm. We want our students to see the process of planting, cultivating, and harvesting plants and flowers. With the greenhouse and classroom planting kit, we will be able to help our students see where plants and food come from in a hands-on way. They will learn what it takes to keep plants alive as well as eat things that they grew themselves. They will grow in science, life skills, and nutrition.
