My students are an energetic and hardworking group of children who are motivated to do their best. My students struggle academically, but they respond positively to technology.
I teach an energetic and motivated first grade class.
This is a difficult time for our school district. Budget cuts over the past several years mean there are no extra funds in our school's budget for supplies. The majority of my students do not come to school with the supplies they need for class. Despite these hardships, my students love coming to school and are eager to learn.
First graders need a way to express themselves in school. As they are just learning to read and write, one main way they express themselves is through drawing. With a lack of supplies this can be a challenge.
We need to give our children a medium they can use to express themselves within school.
We will use the paper and crayons and glue to illustrate our individual and class-wide writing projects throughout the year. We need the storage bin to keep all of our new materials organized and easily accessible to students. These materials will keep our first graders prepared and organized throughout the year.
