My Students

Our class is a group of super 1st-grade students!

When you step inside of our classroom you will see many diverse learners.

Our classroom encompasses many different languages such as English, Creole, Spanish, and Korean. All students are learning the 1st grade curriculum at different levels.

In our class, we use an array of activities to meet the high demands of our diverse population. We are always looking for new resources, and tools to better our students learning, and make their experiences in our class meaningful.

There are many styles of learning in our room. We have some who prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding, some who prefer using sound and music. Others who prefer to learn in groups, many of our students prefer using their hands and sense of touch. In our class we cater to all of these different learning styles, and try to make sure every lesson reaches our diverse learners.

My Project

Students in my school love to practice basketball! However without the proper equipment students often are working against each other rather than on a team. The team jerseys will help student to identify who is on their team! and minimize the arguing. It is my hope that with the proper equipment, all students will take pride in the sport of basketball and foster many talents in our elementary school. Many of our students are very talented and having the opportunity to build those skills at school when they otherwise may not get the chance to, could open up many doors for students in my school!
