My Students

My students are middle school science students in a K-8 neighborhood school. Students are a part of a close community. All of the students at the school qualify for free or reduced lunch, so resources for the families and the school are limited.

Despite our lack of resources, my middle school students are curious and eager to learn.

They especially love using technology, performing science experiments, and completing projects! School is where they can gain access and exposure to new information and ideas. It is a place for them to learn and grow.

My Project

Education is urgent business, and these materials are going to keep everyone on track! In a class that is only about 55 minutes to begin with, every minute matters. The new pencil sharpener will expedite our pencil-sharpening time so students are prepared, and ready to learn and participate in class.

Using our time effectively is important to maximize student learning.

The large digital timer will help our class stay on task and manage our minutes. The batteries will power our classroom timer. The individual sand timers will help students self-regulate their contributions group discussions. For example, if students are discussing content with a partner, they can each easily take a 1-minute turn to share their ideas.
