  • My Class Needs My Class needs science materials to engage students inquiry driven activities

    My Students

    My class is a group of Kindergarten and Grade One inner city students. They are creative, inventive scientists who enjoy making discoveries and deepening their learning through inquiry based activities. The majority of my learners are English Language Learners who are working to communicate their learning through hands on play based learning. My students enjoy building and experimenting together. The students in my class are excited about the opportunity to work with new materials and find new discoveries.

    How will this project impact them?

    My wish for these resources is to further support my students ability to see themselves as capable and budding scientists. I hope that they are able to explore, wonder, notice and experiment with the materials to make new discoveries and share their learning with their peers and teacher. If my campaign is successful I will have numerous materials and resources for my students to become inquisitive learners despite their diverse learning needs. Due to being an inner-city school many students are not able to experience opportunities to explore and manipulate materials and view themselves as real "scientists".

In the past five years of working in the Surrey School District I have worked with primary students from K-2. The last two years I have spent my time as a Kindergarten and Grade One teacher at Hjorth Road Elementary with a bunch of inner-city energetic and passionate learners. In my spa...
