My Students

Do you remember your first science experiment, and what it felt like to actually see the results? My children have been learning about the four seasons and the changes that occur. We want to dive into Spring and learn more about specific topics such as rainbows, insects, and life cycles.

I teach a full day Kindergarten class to 16 inquisitive and eager learners.

My children love reading books with factual information, but we are very limited in hands-on activities that the children can do to explore science. My class loves science just from what we have read in books and I want them to be able to have a hands-on experience with some actual science projects.

My Project

Science is a subject area that should be experienced in a hands-on setting rather than just reading words from a book. The Color and Light kits will allow my children to mix colors, learn about shadows, and make rainbows. They will be able to have science in their hands! The Window Greenhouse will give my children the opportunity to provide for the needs of a plant and to watch it grow in front of them. Each of the Learning centers will let the children take their hands-on experience and apply it to an individual center activity. The center activities will allow me to see the growth that the children have made in their knowledge of each of the topics.

With your wonderful support my children will be able to have Science in their hands.

Science should not be a passive subject but one that allows children to have real experiences. Please help my children learn to love Science through engaging and hands-on activities!
