The Class of 2027 is superstars! They are inquisitive and love learning. They are always asking me what’s going to be our next activity/project? Like most kids their age, they prefer hands-on activities and take ownership of their work. We have created an environment of the growth mindset and encourage collaboration. They understand that everything is difficult until it’s easy. They appreciate their teacher and I appreciate them! Please consider supporting us with your generosity and make a fifth-grader excited about learning.
Our grow lamp is collecting dust in the corner because we need all these consumables to bring our plants to life. Normally, the plant cycle takes months to go over, but not with Wisconsin Fast Plants and a hydroponics system. Students will experience the plant life cycle in just a couple of weeks. Our goals will include the Life Science standards, process grids for data collection, and learning to connect our indoor garden to our school garden. However, the big idea is how can the students apply their learning. I hope to plant the seed of creating a garden in their kitchen or in their yard. Plus as a bonus, there will be a buzz in the air when students cross-pollinate with dried bees and explaining fish poop as a fertilizer with the nitrate cycle will not be a dull moment! Can you hear the laughter? And this is why I teach. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
