I have taught first grade for 9 years. I love teaching because I enjoy building a rapport with my students and helping them develop a love for learning. All students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch because so many of our students come from a lower economic background.
My students work hard in the classroom every day and I want to provide them with the best educational experience and assist them in being successful.
They are an energetic and inquisitive group of kids with an eagerness to learn. Please consider making a donation and helping my students. Thanks for taking the time to visit my page!
My students spend their time learning in various areas of our classroom, but my favorite space to teach is at our meeting area. This area can be found in front of my whiteboard and presents us with the opportunity to be closer together as a class. However, it is not the most comfortable area because they currently have to sit on a hard floor.
My students deserve a nice and comfortable carpet where they can learn without discomfort.
A new alphabet carpet would provide my students with their own individual learning area and allow them to focus more on learning. As little ones, they are still learning about personal space and have a hard time understanding how close they should sit to each other. A new carpet would help eliminate this issue since each student would sit at their own letter.
This alphabet carpet could also be used to review letters and sounds with my students at the beginning of the year as well. For example, I could have all the students sit on a letter and stand up when I dictate the name of their letter or the sound it makes. My students absolutely love these types of activities!
Thank you so much for reading about my project. I hope you consider making a donation to support my students.
