For the Love of Learning
School: Beacon Tree Elementary
One of the most effective ways to reach young learners is through "hands on learning experiences." It is my desire to develop creative learning experiences for my students through hands-on & real-world learning opportunities. Through the funding of this grant, I plan to rent/purchase materials that will bring true meaning to my students' learning. For example, I would like to order special learning kits from a local Historical Society, as well as invite experts to share their knowledge with the students to make learning about Michigan more exciting. Another example of how these funds would bring "learning to life" is through the purchase of specialized materials to support science experiments for our many Mystery Science explorations. Finally, I can't overlook the importance of supporting my students as they strengthen their math skills by utilizing hands-on manipulatives like multiplication/division games & resources.
