My Students

I teach 28 eager first-grade students who enjoy learning how to read, write, and do science projects. Our awesome school is located in Southern California. My students range from gifted and talented to below grade level. We are proud to be a Nationally Recognized School of Excellence and have won many prestigious awards. Since we are not a Title I school, funding extra projects is very difficult!

My Project

I am requesting a Teacher's Pay Teachers gift card to purchase Boom Card games, books, plays, writing assignments and crafts about animals. I will look for digital activities that I can assign to students while distance learning. First graders enjoy reading facts about animals. They will learn about animal adaptions, lifecycles, and habitats during science class.

I am also requesting a simple machines kit to explore force and motion.

The simple machines kit contains 63 pieces to build 5 simple machines that students can construct in science centers. Students can make a lever, pulley, inclined plane, wheel and axle and a wedge.

Finally, I am requesting a 100 piece marble run to teach students about Force and Motion. Students will love building their marble run and racing marbles down the chutes. Won't you help my First Graders explore science! Thank you for your consideration!
