Anchoring Down Mathematics with Base 10 Blocks!

Champion Elementary School

Help us ‘Anchor Down Mathematics with Base 10 Blocks!’ I am seeking support to purchase anchor chart supplies and magnetic base-10 blocks to enhance 1st and 2nd grade students' understanding of place value, specifically focusing on multi-digit addition and subtraction. This initiative aims to strengthen the foundation for a generalized place value understanding and emphasize the conceptual grasp of three-digit numbers.

Expressive Me!

Indian River Elementary School

The goal is to assist PreK students in developing executive function skills in order to increase their social-emotional, self-regulation, expressive language skills, and cooperative play skills. Developing students’ social emotional and regulation skills will allow students to become more engaged in their learning tasks. Specifically, students will learn to identify emotions and the physiological components of what occurs in their bodies, learn ways to regulate their bodies and develop the ability to create positive relationships with peers and adults. Students will also develop vocabulary to express their emotions and communicate their wants, needs and preferences.

This mini grant proposal is based on students’ present levels (as supported in Individualized Education Plans) in the areas of social-emotional learning and expressive language skills; and are supported by both the Florida Early Learning and Development Standards (FELDS) and the Volusia County Schools District Strategic Plan:
Goal 1: 1. Engage ALL learners in high levels of learning EVERY day.
Goal 2: School leaders ensure teachers are infusing culturally responsive practices in their classroom management system, identifying potential implicit bias and ensuring they provide equitable learning opportunities for all students.
Goal 3: Safe & Supportive Environment: 3C Strategy Statement: Support school leaders to build a positive school culture at district facilities.

Readers Make Writers: High Schoolers Write Children's Books for 1st Graders

DeLand High School

Goal: If I receive this grant, it will be my sixth time doing this project. (We first did this project in spring of 2019.)

My goals for my Creative Writers are these:

To use the writing process to develop, write, revise, proofread, illustrate, and publish children’s books for a real audience, and then to deliver them to that audience – selected first graders at Blue Lake Elementary. This process encompasses many skills, and requires a high degree of time management, creativity, and self-motivation. Unlike most writing done in school, this writing will be for a real audience - the first grader they are writing for. It is often said 'the best way to learn is to teach it yourself'. By allowing students to write, publish, and read their book to an elementary student...they are effectively teaching that student their story. It also offers a chance for students to give back to a school they may have attended and to encourage the humanitarian connection between writing and education. The price of books has come down, so I would like to buy additional books for the Early Childhood Development children who attend the “Bullpups” program at DeLand High School as well.



For the past five years, I have had Art students involved in contributing illustrations to some of these books. My goals for these art students are to 1. Give them a chance to collaborate with a writer on an actual published project for a real audience; 2. Help them learn about working on an art project with deadlines; 3. Develop art work from a writer’s words.



My goals for the first graders are these:

Students will develop their love of reading. These students will have a book written especially for them, and this will encourage them to read it. It will be based on their interests and preferences and it will be something they can bring home and keep. Students will be able to use their reading skills to analyze and discuss their books. The creative writing students will using the literary elements of plot, characterization, setting, themes, and irony in creating their stories, so those are elements the first grade students can draw back out of the books.
