My Students

My classroom is made up of wonderfully unique children who come from low-income and at-risk families. All of the children have one content area that they really gravitate towards. I want to enhance their love and desire to learn more about these areas. Each child has a different background and family life. I hope to teach them about different cultures and acceptance.

At this age children learn through everything they do even through (what adults would consider) failure they learn.

Thomas Edison said "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." Children learn most through play even though they are unaware they are learning.

My Project

We are looking to boost the quality and quantity of the items in our science area. The children love different themed file folder games. We just completed units on colors and light where we learned about prisms. The children would love to have a set of prisms that are safe for them to use while they play. The discovery tubes let them explore gravity, currents, mixing and separating items.

We love to be scientists in Room 9 and these items will allow us to explore more themes.

We love discovering how to use new tools, mixing items to create reactions, and observing new changes. Science is so important please help need encourage my students' natural love for learning.
