  • My Class Needs hands on materials and purposeful tools to enhance learning

    My Students

    To say that I teach in a diverse environment is an understatement. My students come from various backgrounds and experiences. One student is a Syrian refugee; three other students are new to Canada and are learning English. Not to mention a student with autism and two other students who are very bright and love being challenged. The list goes on. As you can see, these students have very specific needs and interests. The materials I am asking for will enhance their learning.

    How will this project impact them?

    Should my campaign be successful, the materials I am asking for will help all of my students. First of all, it will help my struggling learners with grasping the concepts of measurement and time. The Science materials will also help ELL learners grasp concepts without being too abstract.The kinetic sand will help not only my student with autism but the students that have never experienced these materials. The headphones I am asking for will help students that need a quiet environment to complete tasks; when I have centres or independent reading time, the regular headphones are required as some students cannot afford to purchase their own. The STEM materials will be used each year no matter what grade I teach. I also like the idea of re-using items and not using materials that will end up in the landfill.

I began my teaching journey back in 2006. I spent 3 years teaching overseas in a BC offshore school in Northern China. It was an incredible experience, learning about Chinese culture and teaching expats from Japan, Australia, England, and Korea. In 2009, I returned back to Canada an...
