My students need science folder games and math books games, pocket charts and other materials to use during center time.
Do you remember your favorite lessons in school? My memories are of hands on activities where I could actually touch and manipulate the materials. They have stayed with me into adulthood. I want to provide these same kinds of experiences to encourage my students to be life-long learners.
Our school is a Title I school and we have 80% free and reduced lunches.
Our school is a low socio-economic area public school. The students in my class are eager to learn and do the very best they can. However, they face many challenges that we sometimes take for granted. For example, many of my students do not have the basic school supplies such as pencil and paper, folders, etc. When it comes to school projects, we must provide them with every material they will need to be successful, or they will not have a project. This puts limitations on our studies and I try to be a creative as I can with our lessons.
With the challenges that we face, we still strive to be and do the very best we can. I put a great deal of thought into making my lessons fit the needs of my students. This includes learning centers and stations. With your help, I can place materials and games in the hands of my students. This will afford them hands-on experiences which will stick with them as they continue their educational career. Science is targeted in my school as a low achieving area. Since math and science are so closely related, the materials I have requested will help boost student performance in both of these areas. I will be able to provide learning games for our stations and materials for our centers. By providing these opportunities, students will gain the knowledge needed to be successful on the state and district exams.
You will be making a difference in the lives of many at risk children.
Many of the requested materials will last for years, which will broaden the impact of this proposal. By providing these opportunities, you will be creating life-long learners with a love for science and math. The items I have requested would not be obtainable with out this grant. Much of our Title I money is allocated for interventionists and basic supplies leaving much to be desired when "teaching outside the box".Read More
