Help me give my students microscopes for hands-on exploration of their environment and get up close and personal to plants, animals, food and microorganisms.
I teach a kindergarten class of 26 children. My class is full of energetic and curious 5 and 6-year-olds. My classroom is diverse in learning styles and abilities levels. I teaching students who are learning to recognize words and starting to work with numbers to those who can read fluently and catch on quickly to math curriculum. My classroom is also diverse in backgrounds and cultures.
Many of my students learn with a more hands-on approach and in fun, inventive ways.
They enjoy learning through games, hands-on exploration, videos, music/song and by working on the computer. I try to find such activities for all my students, not only to engage them in learning but to meet the many abilities levels that are in the room and challenge all the students.
There are a few students with varying special needs in the class as well.
The microscopes will be used for the students to get an up-close look at the things they see and observe on a daily basis. My students are very intuitive about the things around them and love to explore love various types of hand no explorations. I have magnified glasses in my room which my students use to look at numerous things up close. My students are more engaged and retain more information when they are able to explore what they are learning about. I would love for my students to see that there is more to things than we can see with our own eyes.
In the spring I plan on having them look at pond water to see more of the habitat in which tadpoles live and develop.
I also will have the tadpoles for them to watch transition through the stages into a froglet. I believe that seeing both at the same time will develop a better understanding of habitat.
