My Students

My students have a wide variety of learning styles and ability levels, ranging from pre-kindergarten to third grade. Some of my students have special needs. I teach a classroom full of energetic first graders in a rural community.

My students need hands-on tools and engaging manipulatives to enhance our math, writing, and literacy units of study.

A variety of new resources will allow my fabulous first graders to experience first-grade concepts with hands-on tools and games. Help bring our curriculum to life!

My Project

These new learning tools will help my fabulous firsties bloom by bringing our writing, literacy, and math curriculums to life! New writing workshop tools such as Expo markers, Sharpies, chart tablets, paper trays, and gem stickers will increase student motivation, performance, and success! Assorted foam ten frame dice will help build number sense and math fluency while students engage in math games. These math manipulatives will help make learning fun!

It is my goal to engage and support all of my early learners and their wide variety of learning styles.
