My Students

My first graders live in NYC and come from a variety of backgrounds. I have students from many different economic backgrounds, and we all come together as one in our classroom. My 1st-grade classroom is a place where students are equals and respected. Our school provides many opportunities for students to thrive in arts, physical education, and academics.

Our school has been virtually teaching for over a month now.

Teachers are recording lessons each day for students to watch at home and complete the activities. Because we had no warning of when schools would be closing we weren't able to send home any school materials with students. Students are using online platforms to read and recreating the materials at home if they don't have printers.

My Project

These materials will be going to two brothers at my school to help them get the most out of their distance learning.

This family is missing being able to go to the library and so I selected some fun new books to supplement the online reading they are doing!

Also included in the project are markers, paint, & art paper to make their art time at home every more creative and colorful. We included notebooks and workbooks so they can keep all of their school learning work together at home.
