My Students

My first graders are energetic and passionate young learners! Teachers, lawyers, doctors, mechanics and police officers are some of the wonderful people my first graders imagine and strive to be, but lack some of the tools to do so.

They love to learn hands-on and through technology.

They love to research new topics through reading like animals, people and places. My students come from diverse backgrounds in a low income neighborhood of Hartford. My classroom is inclusive with special education students, English Language Learners, and regular education students. All students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

My Project

My first graders need school supplies this year to help them learn. The colored pencils will help them to express themselves through coloring. Colored pencils last longer than crayons and the smaller tips make it easier for students to color in the lines. In first grade students learn a lot through hands on activities that require glue as well.

Dry erase folders will help to save paper and copying!

My first graders will be able to practice writing, answering questions and math facts with the dry erase folders and markers. Students will be able to erase their work and insert a new fact fluency work sheet they want to practice.
