My Students

My students are bursting with energy and have a strong desire to grow and learn.

The majority of my students are Native American and due to the low socioeconomic area we live in, 100 percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch at school.

I am aware of the challenges many of my students face and I make sure that when they walk through my classroom door, they are all given an equal opportunity to learn in a positive, encouraging environment.

My Project

All the these fun and basic supplies will help make my classroom an awesome place for my students to learn.

When we have the best tools to learn we can be successful every day.

We'll use the bright colored card stock for our weekly to-do lists and the construction paper for art projects. The crayons, colored pencils and makers will help us add color to our work. We especially love coloring multiplication fact hidden pictures. The markers and the chart paper will allow me to make colorful anchor chart posters that we hang around the room. These anchor charts remind us of important concepts and math strategies. We'll use the labels to put our names on things like our headphones, backpack hooks, pencil cases etc. Lastly the disinfectant wipes will help us keep our tables, chairs, and supplies germ free.
