Mrs. O'Malley from Garland TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the science tools they need to explore, learn and grow into inquisitive, scientific minded learners.
Each day, 22 students hop, skip, and jump into my classroom, completely excited about what the school day will bring for them. They're young and silly (they are five years old, after all), and eager to grab onto and learn anything I throw at them. I teach at a Title I school in Texas where all of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Poverty affects so much of their lives, but I feel like it's my job to ensure that once they step foot in my classroom, they never feel like they'll have to go without.
My awesome class this year is lovely, but with a few little friends who barely made the cutoff to begin school, they'll need some extra help staying focused and engaged.
This year, I'll be taking advantage of their fire for learning, and I will use the extra energy to drive our instruction down a more active, engaging path toward success. I'll be dedicated to making sure these kids know they matter, and they feel confident that they can succeed in all things.
In kindergarten, science is all about exploring and observing! Unfortunately, my little friends are without some of the essential tools they need to explore their environment and learn new and exciting things! At the moment, we're sharing 6 magnets between the two kindergarten classrooms.
Having a full class set of magnifying hand lenses and magnet wands that are just the right size for little hands will turn my little friends into the super sleuths they've been dreaming of being!
We can explore living things, sort and classify with up close learning, and learn about things that we can attract and repel with magnets.
Being able to put these tools into each child's hands will be a complete game changer as we transform into scientists in kindergarten.
