My Students

My students need the opportunity to explore science in a hands-on environment.

This is my first year teaching and I am very lucky to have the amazing students that I have.

My wonderful students are in first and kindergarten. They are enrolled in the Spanish Immersion program at our Title I school located in our nation's capitol. I teach them English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. They receive Spanish Language Arts and Math in Spanish. The dual language program is great and the results even more exciting for our community.

My Project

All ages need the opportunity to explore science in a hands-on environment. An educational science kit would be a way for my students to work through guided activities to experiment with a variety of activities to learn about the process of science. My kindergarten and first grade class would both be able to use the science kit.

If our classroom had a science kit my students would be able to make science come to life.

They will be more excited about learning science when the are able to work hands on with different science units. They will be challenged and continue to be excel as bilingual citizens
