Animal Non-Fiction for Little Learners

Bryceville Elementary

Our goal is to increase the number of animal non-fiction books available to our lower level readers. Our students love animals and are always asking for books on this topic. We want every student to find books on the many diverse animals of our world they are interested in and on their reading level. We believe this will increase not only their knowledge but their love of reading.

All in for ALL students

Callahan Elementary

One of the key components of UDL is to have clear and meaningful learning goals that are aligned with the needs of the students but also align with county curriculum. “Letting go of the perfect classroom.” UDL-aligned learning goals are focused on the skills, and understandings that students should achieve, rather than on the specific activities, methods, or tools that they should use. UDL-aligned learning goals are also expressed in language that is accessible and relevant to the students, and that allows for multiple ways of showing progress and mastery. UDL is to have transparent and flexible success that communicate the expectations and the evidence of learning to the students. What I love about UDL is it is available for all students at any point of our day. It allows students to help one another and create a more interactive atmosphere in both the education world and social world.

Moving and Learning in Kindergarten

Callahan Elementary

The goal of this project is to provide students with opportunities to move productively throughout the day while supporting their educational learning, social emotional needs and developmental growth. Research shows that movement improves concentration, relieves stress and increases learning. These materials will help students to develop both their fine motor and gross motor skills in the classroom environment, as well as provide opportunities for students to move productively. They will help to engage students in their learning and reinforce the skills learned in a fun and exciting way. I want to give students an amazing first year to their educational career and a reason to be excited about coming to school while also providing them opportunities to move. I believe that teaching students how to move and have fun while learning can spark the excitement that students need to stay engaged and love learning!

Reading Trackers

Callahan Intermediate

Reading is a vital skill for our children. It is necessary not only to become a productive member of society, but also and more importantly, reading gives you access to the world. From learning about a new culture or invention to escaping the worries and struggles of life with a funny story, reading opens multiple doors of opportunity. For all these reasons and more, the goal of our project, Reading Trackers, is to build children’s awareness of how often they are reading. Furthermore, our hope is to have students take ownership of their reading and become independent, responsible thinkers.

The 2023-2024 school year is the third year that I have sponsored the 5th Grade Kindness Club at Emma Love Hardee Elementary School. We meet once a month to plan activities to promote and encourage kindness. It would be wonderful to have some additional resources to do this without having to ask the parents for donations. The activities planned benefit not only our entire school but also the community. Each year I have had over 50 5th grade students involved in the club.

5th Grade Trip to Kennedy Space Center

Emma Love Hardee Elem.

I know that I have submitted a grant for the 5th Grade Kindness Club, but after speaking to Kim Lunt and several 5th grade teachers, we wanted to submit this as well. The goal is to invite all 5th Grade FIT (Families in Transition) students and all 5th Grade ESOL students on a field trip to the Kennedy Space Center in January or February of 2025. This trip would take place on a day off of school, either the teacher planning day, Martin Luther King Day or President's Day so that these students do not miss a day of instruction, no subs are needed and the bus would not be pulled from a regular route. The idea for this field trip has stemmed from working closely with both our FIT and ESOL students and realizing that none of them have ever been to the Kennedy Space Center. My current FIT/ ESOL 5th graders were working on their African American History projects and many were so excited to learn about Katherine Johnson, the African American mathematician behind the movie Hidden Figures. I believe it would be so powerful for these students to have something to work towards the first semester of school. The students would be invited in August and told about the trip. In order to attend, they would need to have less than 10% absences and an A or B in conduct. Many of our FIT students are struggling with attendance and also with conduct, at times. This could help improve both of those areas as well as exposing these students to a trip of a lifetime.

Feelings in Control

Emma Love Hardee Elem.

Our goal at Emma Love Hardee Elementary is to help promote positive behavior through various techniques. We are beginning to see an increased amount of students that are hyperactive, easily overwhelmed, and have difficulty controlling their emotions. Often times, when a student begins to escalate due to frustration or sensory overload he/she is unable to regulate their system to help return them to a calm regulated state, which would allow them to continue their learning. We would like to provide a space for every classroom (36 total) to have a sensory break/calming space to facilitate the student being able to regulate them self and come back to the learning environment.

Foster a Love for Reading

Yulee Elementary

Every year as a reading teacher, our number one goal is to foster a love for reading. As we continue to navigate through new state standards and using our recently adopted reading Benchmark curriculum, we continue to think outside of the box about ways we can do just that.
We like to encourage a mixture of some hands-on activities that can be completed by the students and used to help engage them in the text not only from our new curriculum but also from the suggested grade level reading list given to us by the state. The priority for any reading teacher is to think creatively so that we can spark a love for reading in all of our students. In order to do this, at times, we have to create exposure to text that the students can hold and take it a step further using a variety of manipulatives to give our students.

Completing Essays in the 21st Century

Yulee Elementary

In order to effectively integrate writing and reading comprehension together and accommodate the shift in the new Florida State Standards, our students need accessibility to computer-based writing prompts. Along with accessibility to prompts, they need the opportunity to practice by typing their essays. The goal as reading teachers is to set students up for success by giving them exposure to these types of materials and the opportunity of typing on the computer.

Gizmos: The World's largest library of Math and Science Simulations

Yulee Elementary

The goal for this request is to provide a computer program for students in the realm of science to help supplement learning. Our students during small group get to spend a part of their block on technology. It would be such a benefit for the students to have a program they could explore and learn Science content, while also having fun and engaged. This is also a program we would use to make certain concepts hands on that are not possible in a real situations. For example state standards require 5th grade science students to know the parts of the digestive system. Gizmos has its own simulation where students build and create their own digestive systems.

Schoolwide STEM - Let's Get Hands-On!

Yulee Primary

Rather than submit several small grants, YPS has combined five requests into a single submission. (A few YPS teachers with larger projects are submitting individual grant requests as well.) Kelley MacCabe, Media Specialist, will execute the grant funds and distribute requested materials to teachers.

Last year, we applied for a Navy grant to develop our school's STEM program. They were able to fulfill two-thirds of our grant request.

Today, we are asking for...

1- STEM kits to complete this grant for each teaching pod
2- STEM kits to complete this grant for the Library
3- Replacement humidity meters to support our Embryology program
4- Specific STEM Materials for four Classrooms:
Circuit & Logic activities for Ms. Marlow's 2nd grade classroom
Engineering & Robotics activities for Ms. Dozier's 2nd grade classroom
Garden STEM sets to be shared by all Kindergarten classrooms (Ms. Foose)
Construction kits for Ms. Emerson's 1st & 2nd grade ESE classroom
5- Noise-cancelling headphones for use by students with sensory challenges

Yulee Primary's Whole School Strategy for introducing STEM activities to students:

A- During weekly visits to the Library, students experience a variety of STEM materials which they can use to complete engineering challenges or build creatively. These activities rotate throughout the year and build student problem-solving skills and develop frustration tolerance.

B- Teachers are encouraged to use STEM materials as a learning opportunity when inclement weather requires indoor recess. This free time can become a source of fun, hands-on learning if teachers have ready access to grade-appropriate STEM materials.

C- Teachers are also encouraged to use STEM Parties as incentives/rewards, motivating students to meet their educational goals.

D- Each year, the school hosts a Family STEAM Night in April. Several hundred students and family members come together to try a variety of activities, focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

YPS Current STEM Goals:

1- We would like to provide each four-classroom Teaching Pod with 4 STEM activity kits, giving teachers and students immediate access to STEM materials when they have a class celebration, indoor recess, and as incentives for early finishers. Each grade level will have different STEM activities, so that students experience new challenges as they move up through the grade levels. [2/3 of these STEM kits have already been provided by the Navy Grant.]

2- We would like to increase the Library’s STEM resources, for everyday use during Library classes. These activities will also be utilized at the annual Family STEAM Night, at schoolwide Positive Behavior and Accelerated Reader Celebrations, and as additional checkout materials for teachers. [2/3 of these STEM kits have already been provided by the Navy Grant.]

3- In 2019, The Nassau Foundation Grant provided our school with Embryology materials. Since that time, 42 classrooms and approximately 750 students have utilized the materials to hatch chicks in their classrooms. Most of the grant-purchased materials are self-sustaining. Only the humidity meters have failed over time. We are seeking to replace the humidity meters so that teachers can continue check out full egg-care kits from the Library.

4- In addition, four teachers have expressed special interest in bringing STEM activities into their classrooms. We are including their requests in our grant.

5- Several of our students have sensory challenges that make loud settings very difficult (in the cafeteria, at assemblies, during PE, and in some cases, throughout the school day). YPS is a Title One school, and many of our families cannot afford to provide noise-cancelling headphones for their students. Blocking out background noise can enhance students' abilities to pay attention, participate in learning, and retain information. Teachers end up paying for headphones themselves. The YPS Library would like to purchase 12 headphones that we can check out to teachers and students as needed. The headphones will be returned at year-end, so this headphone resource should last indefinitely.
