My classroom is part of a Head Start Program in a Headstart through 5th-grade school in North Miami. I serve up to 20 children, with inadequate technology resources to reach the students' full potential.
Our beautiful school has a high number of students who are first-generation immigrants from Haiti.
In funding this project, these children will have access to their daily activities and make much more progress in their learning growth.
Each student has great potential for learning, and this project will enhance their ability to excel.
This month, our school was officially designated a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) school. We are so excited that we made the requirements on our second try.
Because the disciplines are all intertwined, applied sciences will have to be infiltrated in every area, starting from Pre-K.
Although I am very excited to be part of the solution, the weight of Pre-K being the foundation or stepping stone seems heavy as my classroom lacks most of the early learning science resources, manipulatives, and technology to make STEAM in our Pre-K curriculum a success. The list for early learning scientific materials for my students was so incredibly long, that I decided to break the projects into affordable chunks.
In part one, I am requesting, magnifying glasses, test tubes, farm animal manipulatives, eye droppers, and flashlights for our science exploration center. Please donate and help me build my science curriculum for my Pre-K students.
