TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a magnet kit, an interactive weather center, and books about weather.
This class makes every morning that I wake up, a day I look forward to being at work. I currently teach Science to two kindergarten classes in a low-income area of New York. (Every student qualifies for free or reduced-fare lunches) This is my first year with this group of students. I have a large mix of students whose levels range widely. Many students are second language learners from countries such as the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan, to name a few. Because of this, many of my students do not receive the support they need at home.
Additionally, about 1/3 of our this general education group has an IEP and receive special education services.
The various disabilities range from reading processing issues to delays in speech, to autism. This can be challenging at times, but the students are kind and supportive of one another like a family.
In kindergarten this year, we will be learning about a lot about the weather. I am hoping that we will be able to learn about weather through the use of an interactive weather center. Since some students are still unable to speak or understand in English it is so imperative that they have visual and hands-on instruction about the weather. This way all of my students will be able to learn and understand the concepts of weather and the four seasons. We will be able to look further at weather patterns and make predictions about what we will encounter during the different seasons.
