Awesome Resources For Awesome Kids!

My Students

My students come from various backgrounds. Some of them are from low-income families who have hard working parents. Some of the students in my classroom are raised by both parents, while others are being raised by only one parent, grandparents, or foster parents. Despite who is raising them, they are well cultivated kids!

My students take reading seriously!

They are eager to learn how to read! They work very hard during the school day on reading and they work hard after school! They take home books to practice reading to their parents. They are excited when they have learned how to read a new story! My students strive to do their best!

My Project

I teach first graders how to read and one of my goals in my classroom is to instill the love of reading in them! This year we have a new reading series in our school. The new series has online awesome printable resources!

They have printable books for the students to read, as well as, activity sheets for them to complete for the skills that are being taught throughout the week.

I want to be able to print off the books in color so my students will be more active when doing picture walks, as well as, seeing the vibrant colors. The ink cartridges will help me get the online printable resources I need. The other items: clear protector sheets, page dividers, and (sticky note) dividers will help me to become more organized with this new reading series!
