My Students

The students in my class are a diverse set of learners. Many students in my classroom are English Language Learners. I also have students from low income backgrounds who have minimal access to books and technology at home.

First graders love to learn, laugh and have some fun!

Being able to work with students has been my lifelong dream, and I want to create the best classroom environment for them. This means creating a classroom with a variety of books, and giving them all of the opportunities that I can.

My Project

With the books and audiobooks, my students will be able to immerse themselves in reading. These texts will be age appropriate and familiar to students. Getting books into the hands of students is the only true way to help them learn how to read! When students can find a book that interests them, they are more likely to read the book and want to pick up another.

Finding the answer on their own is the best way!

The Breakout EDU kit will enable me to create fun activities and hands-on learning experiences. We did some breakout activities for a Family Literacy Night, and students came in asking if we could do more in the classroom. Students will want to learn through fun math and literacy breakout activities.
