My Students

My students attend a public Montessori school and are culturally, religiously, and socio-economically diverse. They are goal oriented and enjoy the hands-on learning and materials that the Montessori environment provides. They work diligently on their lessons and crave new materials to use throughout the curriculum, especially in the areas of reading and language-arts. My students are truly a wonderful group of kindergarten and first graders who are intrinsically motivated and love to learn more than anything. I am so fortunate to be their teacher!

My Project

The hands-on Science Specimen Centers will provide my k/1 students with opportunities to work on science lessons. Since the Montessori philosophy encourages students to learn at their own pace; there is a critical period in which they learn the best: when they are interested in the topic.

Having the hands-on Science Specimen Centers will provide myriad learning opportunities in the area of science.

The lessons can be extended into research projects to help deepen the understanding of the content being studied. I am certain that these lessons will spark the interest of all of my students because the hands-on matherials are so nice.
