Mrs. Gaskins from Salem AR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science at Last!

My students need these resources because our school does not have a Science curriculum. These magazines and book will be a great resource! The chair will be a great addition to our reading center!

My Students

I have a large group this year that loves to learn! They are eager and determined. We consider ourselves a classroom family and they help each other in every way. They love to laugh and are very curious to learn new things. They love Science! Doing Science experiments are their favorite thing to do!

I am excited for this year because I have a wonderful group who are willing to learn and work hard!

We have already started on some Science experiments and I can tell they love Science! They are always engaged, asking questions, and wanting more. They are very sweet and eager to learn!

My Project

My school does not have a specific Science curriculum so I have been pulling different materials to meet our Science Standards. Scholastic News and Science magazine is a great way to include Science in the classroom while reading interesting stories that spark the students' interests. The Daily Science will be a great way to include Science EVERYDAY in the classroom. I believe all children have the love for Science and I want to encourage this. I have also included a chair for my students to enjoy in my reading center. This is where they can take their magazine and read their magazines!

I believe Science is so important in school.

It helps children to continue to be curious, ask questions, and do hands on experiments. I want my students to be excited about learning and I believe these materials will help with this!
