Offering student-designed, project-based opportunities to expand traditional learning

Freeport High School

Over the last 4 years, our Agritechnology Program has developed an outdoor classroom using a traditional garden setting that has 5 raised beds and a small greenhouse which are used to grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, and flowers. This garden area allows students to take their traditional learning outside to the garden and learn about the Vegetable and Nursery Industries as they work towards career and technical certifications in these fields. After four years, we now have a diverse group of students using these resources, from first year students to fourth year students. As students work in the garden, they are restricted to what other classes have done in years past. The basics are there, but as their knowledge grows, they recognize that there are ways to improve the efficiency of their time, our space, and the production of the garden. The ability to improve the garden systems (irrigation, space, aesthetics, and even our enjoyment of the garden) results in this request for funding.

Exceptional Students Plus Technology = Progress

Walton Intensity School of Excellence

Reading literacy is the end all; be all for life and in school. Being able to read well helps students and their families to break out of the generational poverty cycle. If you are a good reader, your chance of getting a good paying job increases exponentially. Helping our students who are struggling readers at the WISE Center is one of the most pivotal challenges we face as educators today. Due to the use of technology in our student's lives today, it makes sense to approach this with technology. We would like to heighten our students’ interest in literacy with supplementary technology and resources for whole group and small group instruction.
By the conclusion of this school year, we would like to see a 15% increase in mastery of our student's reading skills such as comprehension, fluency, and decoding of literature. This will include stories, news articles, poetry, and dramas as tested by the FAST ELA/Reading test.

A good book opens up a whole world of knowledge. I want to pass on the love of reading and choosing good books to my students.

Be the BEST Readers: Reading across Genres with Florida Books

Van R Butler Elementary

Florida wants its students to be the BEST readers they can be. We can get them there with a little help from books on the list of approved books from the state. These books provide a wide array of informational reading texts that students can explore vis a vis the Florida BEST Language Arts standards and benchmarks. These will be excellent tools for the fourth grade language arts teachers to help students meet these standards/benchmarks.
The fourth grade language arts teachers are responsible for teaching a wide range of reading skills. Among these are important skills that are utilized across reading genres – in all types of texts. To teach these skills, it is helpful to have specific types of texts. These skills include two in particular that the first progress monitoring assessment showed fourth graders were low in - comparative reading (comparing different accounts of the same event) and paraphrasing/summarizing.
In addition to being good choices for these two reading skills, the books purchased through this grant will complement the materials currently utilized by the district to add diversity to the types and levels of text so that students can be remediated and extended where appropriate. The books dovetail nicely with the social studies curriculum as well and aid in teaching the content/skills required in fourth grade social studies. In addition, the books will help students build important background knowledge that improves reading comprehension.

ABC Come Read With Me

Bay School

I would like to cultivate a lifelong love of reading in my classroom through the use of books, props and activities that will help prepare my students for their educational career. To quote Dr. Seuss: 'The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!' Picture books bring numerous benefits to students as they begin to develop their reading skills. These benefits include building language skills, identifying sequences of events, improving comprehension, and boosting social and emotional learning. But the learning doesn't stop there! They will also gain math skills, expand their vocabulary, learn about the world around them, visit places far away, and improve their imagination and creativity. This grant will help provide books and materials related to the stories to help facilitate the hands-on learning I use with my students. These resources will be available for other teachers at Bay School to use in their classrooms as well.

Help me create a Spanish Library for our school!

Seacoast Collegiate High School

As a second language learner myself, I find that true learning happens beyond classroom instruction, it happens when we put our learning into practice through speaking, reading and writing and enjoy it!. For that reason, building our Spanish Library has two goals:

1. Teach Spanish through Literacy and differentiation. I want students to love learning Spanish. Providing books for structured reading time and free-reading at various levels is an amazing way to reach each student where they are.

2. Inclusivity through Literacy. To help Heritage Spanish speakers connect with their mother tongue and culture. This student population spends most of their school day speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English. Many of our students are fluent in speaking and listening, but cannot read or write very well. For that reason, it is so important that as a school, we strengthen their literacy skills in their mother tongue as it sets them up for success with their English literacy.

Empowering Essentials: Enhancing ELA Instruction

Walton High School

With this funding 125 Walton High School sophomores will have the basic tools they need to master the fundamentals of close reading and critical thinking. Last year, English departments throughout the district were challenged to find, vet, and implement texts and materials that better aligned with the rigor and complexity of the new B.E.S.T standards. As the Walton High School tenth grade ELA team develops and implements lessons from these resources, we must often create and copy pieces of texts for close reading and annotations, graphic organizers, and guided notes. For my students to learn and practice the skills needed to read a text closely and critically, they must physically engage with the pages, writing notes, marking for language, creating visuals, and identifying questions and areas for further exploration. Because the new text sets are not consumables the way the old textbooks were, materials must be copied for each student, and, as you know, paper is at premium for teachers. This grant will allow me to purchase additional paper as well as sticky notes, annotation tabs, index cards, and highlighters so my students can become active and engaged readers and learners.

Classroom iPads

Maude Saunders Elementary

My goal is to provide my students who do not communicate well or can't verbalize any response, but are able touch to respond, the opportunities in the classroom that will enable them to become successful communicators for the rest of their lives with a device that will enhance and ensure success in and out of the classroom. Also, the goal is to increase receptive and expressive language in the classroom when working on their classwork that requires the utilization of technology to answer or advocate for themselves. The iPads will be used on a daily basis and will have a great impact on ensuring increased communication of what they know, what they can learn and express needs as they will regularly use technology for the rest of their lives. iPad's will decrease frustration, anxiety, and other behaviors when it comes to the traditional pencil and paper tasks, allowing them more opportunities to reach IEP goals, as well personal goals.
The technology programs the school district has for their curriculum is available on newer versions of technology devices. Laptops increase frustration and confusion for student who can only respond by pointing or touching. The keyboard on a computer is a distraction for our non-verbal students and limits their attention to learning. Also, the device offers guided access to ensure students will not wander off from the programs or curriculum or touch buttons that are not part of the lesson. The programs on the devices that students will be using on a daily basis will be individualized to meet each student's needs and offer them to work at their individualized pace. For example, students who are considered to be below grade level will be assigned material based on the skills that they need to be successful, with opportunities to have repeated practice on a device that can provide automatic feedback and limit distractibility.

Our Classroom Garden

Dune Lakes Elementary School

My goal for my class is to create impactful educational opportunities that engage my students with their natural world and enable them to make healthy choices. With the Hands-on learning garden like the Lettuce Grow Farmstand, we can use these powerful tools to spark curiosity, improve childhood nutrition and create life-long healthy eating habits. When students have a hand in growing fruits and vegetables, they are more likely to try them, enjoy them and inspire other kids to do the same. Additionally, kids who grow up enjoying fruits and vegetables are more likely to continue eating them through adulthood.

No Longer Fighting the Fidgets

Van R Butler Elementary

Children are meant to move but they are so restricted in their day to day. They are expected to just sit at a desk and focus on their work. However, children are busy so this can be a challenge for some. They begin to tap their pencils on their desks, lean back and rock in their chairs or find reasons to get out of their seats. Students have little to no say in how their classroom is presented to them. There is assigned seating and desks situated in groups or in rows. I would like to give some control to my students in their classroom, to give them the ability to decide what is the best choice for helping them feel comfortable in their environment to promote their best learning.
