Bringing Learning to Life
School: Beacon Tree Elementary
"Hands on learning experiences" are a proven way to reach young learners most effectively. While Covid-19 has created a shift in our learning style by incorporating more technology, I want to balance this with hands-on & real-world experiences for my students in our classroom too. For example, through the funding of this grant, I'd like to request materials to help bring true meaning to my students learning. For example, I would like to order kits from a local historical society that include a variety of artifacts (like animal furs or voyager-style clothing) to make learning about Michigan more exciting. Another example of how these funds would bring "learning to life" is through the purchase of additional 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.
