Hooray! This project is fully funded
Excited to learn, friendly, kind, enthusiastic and fun-loving. These are words I would use to describe my students. I love to watch their faces light up whenever I take them outside to learn about the world around them and they discover something they hadn't noticed before or see them share how they solved a difficult math problem with their neighbor. This is what being an educator is all about.
My 3rd graders are learning to do their personal best and persevere as they learn new things.
We have approximately 850 total students. It is located in a middle-class, suburban neighborhood. Majority of students are Caucasian. 28% are ethnic minority; 12% English Language Learners; 32% economically disadvantaged; 9% qualify for special education services. They love learning experiences that challenge them and allow them to soar to new heights.
In Science, the third graders at our school learn about helping the Earth by reducing, reusing and recycling. We encourage the school to recycle their paper and reuse blank sides of printed paper whenever possible. Every week a class takes turns collecting the recycling for the school.
In April for Earth Day, we perform an Earth Day Program integrating aspects of Language Arts, Science, Art, and Math with songs, poems written by students, and student art that helps teach our school about why the earth is important and how we can help make it better.
This year we thought we would create a video with pictures and video clips taken with the camera showing ways students at our school can help the earth. We also would use the white boards in our classroom as a way to show our learning instead of copied worksheets on paper.
