My students need 25 Scholastic News and Science Spin Magazine Subscriptions, Hot Dot Math and Science Activity Cards, and a portable CD Player to enrich their learning.

My Students

Help inspire these future scientists! The materials I have requested will help strengthen my students' math skills and continue to foster their love of science.

I have 23 second graders who really love to learn and absolutely love math and science!

Their academic abilities vary widely- some below grade level and needing intervention to some high achieving students who finish work quickly and need supplemental enrichment materials. Many of my students have had limited access to science instruction. Our school is located in a low income area and 90% of our students qualify for free/reduced cost lunch.

My Project

A strong foundation and understanding of math is integral to the pursuit of future careers in science. The "Hot Dots Math Activity Cards" will allow my students to engage in meaningful skill reinforcing activities in math. The "Hot Dots Science Activity Cards" will allow students engaging science activities to supplement our district provided science curriculum. The CD Player will allow students to listen to Science audiobooks making science text more accessible to all of my students regardless of their reading ability. The "Scholastic News and Science Spin" magazine subscription will allow my students access to engaging science text. In addition, the subscription includes access to digital learning tools that students can use in the school computer lab.

This project is so important to my students because these materials will allow them to strengthen their math skills and continue to foster their love and curiosity of science.

These materials will help to inspire and prepare my future scientists!
