My Students

My classroom is in a low-income neighborhood and houses a group of bright and talented little learners. Most of our students come from low-income housing and households that have more than one child. This makes it difficult for families to provide more than the basic needs of life.

Our students are busy focused young minds; who enjoy coming to school every day.

They welcome and embrace new and exciting learning opportunities. They step up to challenges with smiles on their eager faces.

My Project

Science allows for exploration and exploration allows for great hands-on learning opportunities. Learning through the senses is a great tool for eager learners. Sensory activities allow children to explore through their hands and fingers. Different textures allow children to open their minds and ask questions about what they are seeing, feeling, and helps them determine what interest them.

Children are better learners when they experience hands-on opportunities!

I am requesting a variety of learning materials that can open minds and heighten senses. These materials will target the senses allowing children to: view plants and animals they have never seen before, use their hearing to identify sounds, and use their fingers to feel different textures.
