Seventy-five percent of my students have free lunches. This group of kids come from low-income families in the heart of Houston, Texas.
Most of the students who are going to our school have been devastated by the most destructive Hurricane in years.
After being subjected to different hardships due to Hurricane Harvey, my students still have the enthusiasm go to school with smiles on their faces and pair of hands eager to work.
They enter the science laboratory full of energy, eager to learn and excited for what is in store for them on that day. That's the reason why I have to do my part as their second parent in their lives. I want them to learn the way my real kids learn and achieve the way their parents want them to. Let us make it happen, teach our kids to learn by doing.
My students are always excited to go to the science lab. I prepare exciting and meaningful lessons in science stations. So when days pass by that my students do not go to the science lab due to disruptions of classes, I get bombarded with the question, "When are we going to the science lab, Ms. V?".
The fascination in the eyes of my students inspires me to keep searching for meaningful science activities.
Science lab stations are the best way to make students explore, do hands-on activities and answer inquiry-based questions.
The donations that will be gathered to complete this request will definitely improve my students' arguments over who's going to do what in the lab stations. It will improve classroom behavior problems because they have enough materials and supplies to do the assigned task.
