  • My Class Needs science materials to learn the joy of making mistakes!

    Launched November 6th, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 623 Students

    My Students

    My class of 20 Kindergarten students are an exceptionally curious and inquisitive group. Specifically, they have been asking about electricity and light bulbs. There are also a few who have significant sensory and regulatory needs. Specifically, one student has autism and a few have anxiety about being "wrong" and being in unpredictable situations.

    How will this project impact them?

    Riding the wave of curiosity, I hope to encourage the inquisitive nature of the group and use "discovery" and "wondering" as a way to help my students with anxiety. My hope is that these particular students will discover that learning is not about being "wrong" but there is even enjoyment in asking questions and testing theories and trial and error. My student with autism would benefit from trying new experiments that include sensory elements. I wanted to purchase some kits that encourage self-discovery and trial and error and some sensory items to explore elements of weight and density.

The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds.
