My Students

I have thirty-six culturally diverse students. We are part of a Title I school where everyone gets free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students come from poverty-stricken homes and need more than just an education from me. They need love, acceptance, and support as well.

This group is extra special because they are my first group in a collaborative classroom.

It is an amazing opportunity that I am so thankful to share with these kids and my new co-teacher.

My Project

In a first grade classroom, many of the materials we use become broken or lost. It is sometimes hard for a 6-year-old to keep up with all the small pieces to a game or activity. This is part of the reason why I like to create games for my kids. I can easily print a new piece when one gets lost or damaged.

Another reason I like to create materials is so that I can make sure I have games and activities on each of my students level.

I am requesting card stock so that I can print games and activities for centers and small group lessons.
