Ms. Finn from Middleburg FL is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready, Set, Grow!

Help me give my students planters for our outdoor learning environment, so they can plant, care for, harvest, and then EAT vegetables as they learn more about plants and the world around them.

My Students

Despite a community with over 50% low-income families, our kids are ready, willing, and able to face any challenge and love to demonstrate their learning through their work every day.

With our new Montessori program, my classroom and outdoor learning environment will inspire students to explore, create, discover, and develop a life-long love of learning.

By focusing on the whole child with the adult serving as a guide to their learning, my kids are able to dive deeply into those areas that they want to study. Then by following their lead, I can integrate their lessons with materials they're excited about and use those subjects as the basis of everything from reading, to writing, to math, and science. Each child has a learning path all their own. And they love it! (And so do I.)

My Project

Our Montessori classroom focuses on educating the whole child, and nothing is more basic than the need for food. Unfortunately, most of my lower-income suburban students think that the few vegetables they will actually eat come only from the grocery store.

By planting, growing, harvesting, and eating their own vegetables, my kids will grow in their scientific knowledge of plants and grow in their own healthier bodies.

The planter box will allow my students to work in our outdoor classroom area either independently or in small groups as they investigate the various stages of plant growth and development.

And I guarantee even the fussiest of kids will eat a vegetable if they were the one who grew it!
