My students are in second grade and attend a Title I school. 99% of the students at our school have at least one parent serving in the military. They are constantly moving from school to school. I do my best to make sure they feel safe, loved, and welcomed. I also have a large population of students with special needs. They work hard and are excited to be at school every day.
Students who come from military families are resilient.
I make the transitions for them as easy as possible, and I welcome them and encourage them to be successful. I am amazed every day by the sacrifices these students and their parents have to make. I feel honored to teach these students. It is the least I can do to help support them.
My class LOOOVVVVEEEESSSS SCIENCE! I cannot express the joy they have when it comes to science time. They are curious, attentive, and engaged during all of the lessons. Science is also one of my favorite subjects to teach as well!
Unfortunately, science supplies can be very expensive.
I spend a great deal of my own money on our classroom science supplies. This is why I am asking for a Mystery Science Kit. The kit contains all of the science equipment and materials that we would need for the entire year. Some of the projects include learning about erosion, the students will be making their own land models to demonstrate what erosion looks like. Other experiments allow the students to see the different properties of matter. The students will be melting candy to learn about liquids and solids. Towards the end of the year the students will get to plant radishes and learn about how animals impact our world. Science is one of the very reasons I became a teacher, curiosity keeps me challenged and motivated. I feel this passion for curiosity in my classroom. I would love for the students to get the opportunity to explore more in our class. With these science supplies we will be able to do just that!
I would truly appreciate any help we could get for our science supplies for the year. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post!
