My Students

Mad Scientists in action! My classroom uses a total hands on approach at learning. I would like to provide materials for my students so that the literacy and language skills we work on can be accompanied by real world examples and manipulatives for better understanding!

I am a pre-k teacher for a small school that is considered high poverty.

18 of my 20 students are ESL students and many if not all of my students do not get real life rigorous experiences in the science world. I have a very active and eager to learn class this year and I have quickly run out of experiments and manipulatives for their busy minds! I am hoping that this donation will add to our last unit of study for this year which is Earth and Life science. We will be learning how to take care of our Earth and how a healthy Earth benefits our well being in the long run. This unit will be a first experience for my students and I would love to provide them with fun hands on examples so that they enjoy this unit to the fullest and leave for kindergarten on a positive well rounded note!

My Project

My students will use these materials to learn more about recycling and taking care of our Earth. We will also be studying animals, insects and life cycles as well as weather and seasons. These materials will give my curious students hands on opportunities as well as activities I can do with small groups to go deeper with their thinking. Because my students are ESL students, hands on materials are a vital resource to have to make their learning more relevant.

My students are all considered high poverty at risk students.

Any donations will greatly help them have a fair and comparable educational experience to other schools that may have more resources. My students will be able to gain more understand of Earth and Life Sciences when they can do experiments and activities with hands on manipulatives instead of just gaining knowledge from a book. Being able to share literacy and language skills ALONG with hands on activities is every teachers dream.
