My Project

My students come to school every day eager and ready to learn. Having a welcoming classroom is fundamental. The bulletin board paper will be used to highlight and display students work across the curricula. The Astrobright paper motivates the students to complete assignments using brightly colored backing. Some other necessary resources are chart tablets, glue, markers, and funtak. All of these resources are used to create and display anchor charts. Also, students will use these resources to complete group tasks.

Being prepared and having access to these basic materials will help my students have a successful year of learning.

Thank you for considering this project.
