Mrs. Sanzone from Waterbury CT is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students items to use for Science such as a butterfly kit, soil and seeds!
My students are energetic, eager to learn, and fun-loving. Despite some tough situations some of my students face at home, they come in everyday really giving it their all. Our school is 100% free breakfast and lunch. Coming from an urban district and a Title I school, unfortunately my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts.
The need for imagination, as a sense of truth, and as a feeling of responsibility — these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education.
- Rudolf Steiner
For this reason, I work extra hard to raise money for supplies that will be used by my students. These supplies benefit my students in so many ways, and it also teaches them a deeper lesson of how good the world can be. Over the years when I have told my students that we have gotten a project funded and we were getting supplies, the looks on their faces were priceless. My students are so appreciative, and donations from kind-hearted people really impact their lives in such a major way!
Although its hard to imagine right now, Spring will be here before we know it! I am requesting some materials to give my students more hands on lessons during Science! The potting soil, seeds and pots will be used when we learn about plant life cycles. The students will each be able to grow their own flowers, then it will be brought home as a gift for Mother's Day! The markers will be used so that the students can decorate the pots before giving them to their mothers!
“We can teach from our experience, but we cannot teach experience.
I am also requesting a butterfly garden kit to go with the lesson on butterfly life cycles. Once the weather gets warmer I will purchase the caterpillars so the students can see them transform. Science is so interesting especially when it becomes interactive and hands on. Please help me give my students these materials to help engage them in the content! Lastly I am asking for some St. Patrick's Day novelty items to give my students!
