My Students

I work with an amazing group of elementary students, from an amazing neighborhood. Most of my students are coming from homes that speak primarily Spanish. They love coming to school, and both my students and their families care about their education. In addition, my students have special needs and often need extra support with reading, writing, and math. Simple tasks can be challenging and frustrating, but they teach me on a daily basis, about perseverance and what it means to give it your all!

My Project

I am asking for basic materials that my students will need in order to complete assignments with me from home. Versatile items such as write and wipe pockets and white board markers can make it possible for students to follow along with me as I demonstrate new topics. They can also be used for students to show me that they know what I am doing. This will also prevent the waste of lots of paper, as this is a reusable option!

Letter tiles are another one of those basic materials that make demonstrating what they know so much easier.

I work with my students on spelling words all the time during our phonics practice. We also work on unscrambling letters. My youngest students will use these tiles to help write their names and find the letters that make up their names.

Please consider supporting this project and help me make this at home learning as simple as possible for my amazing students!
