My Students

Classrooms are filled with a rainbow of possibilities. I am lucky to be able to teach and learn next to such a diverse group of students. They each have their unique colorful personality, and yet together they make the perfect rainbow. Due to their wide range of needs, and my first year of teaching 1st grade, I do not have enough appropriate materials at each individual student level. I am hoping with some help, I can fill my classroom with the love of learning.

My Project

By donating to our project, you are helping pinpoint areas of need and close the learning gap. Centers help students refine skills they have yet to master. These centers will reinforce content in a fun and exciting way. The sight-word instant learning center will help students recall commonly used words and how to spell them without using ancient ways of recall. The Numbers to 100 Match-Ups activity will help students learn by playing! The Classroom Magnetic Letters kit will allow students to spell sight words as well as work on phonics. CVC Word Work Center will help students in the beginning stage of their reading adventure get the extra practice. For students looking to be challenged, the Simple Sentence Instant Learning center will help them become strong writers.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
