My Students

My class is a smart bunch of kids who love to learn! I work in a high poverty Title I school in Milwaukee's largest district. The children I work with each day come to school with an excitement to learn and explore.

As their teacher, I want them to have the supplies they need to succeed in a fun and engaging way.

We try to create as many hands-on experiences as possible to help them learn. At this grade school, learning is fun, and students get excited by the many new things they learn each day. They become even more excited when they can show off what they know!

Many of these students have limited access to art supplies, science exploration materials, and books at home. When they come to school, I want to give them a chance to explore and learn by using these things. As is true for any other child their age, they enjoy free play to imagine and have fun as well.

My Project

The science materials I am requesting will allow my class to learn and explore science in a hands-on and engaging way. We will use the magnifying glasses and the specimen slides to see what different bugs and plants look like up close. We will use the science viewers to view different things around the world from the comfort of our class. We are asking for the magnet set and the magnets so we can explore what sticks to magnets and what does not.

Many students in my class do not have a chance to explore hands-on science learning at home, and I want the chance to provide them with this at school.

We are asking for the plastic dinosaur collection because they are fun and will teach us about animals that lived before us.
