My Students

I teach a class of wonderful and sweet second graders in a Nationally Distinguished Title 1 school. About 85% of our school is eligible for Free/Reduced lunch. My students appreciate knowing there are people out there who care about them!

These students are extremely deserving of classroom materials due to the pandemic over these past two years.

Over the past year and half these students have been learning remotely or as a hybrid model. They have struggled to stay up with the curriculum due to the lack of in classroom instruction.

My Project

These materials will allow students to expand their creativity with their learning. These past two years have been difficult learning online because second graders need to be in school. These supplies will expand their creativity, and allow them to explore the fun activities that can only be done within the classroom. Having a document camera will change how I am able to teach, it will expand how I can demonstrate and use it for instruction. This will help the students because it will portray worksheets and content bigger for my visual learners. The art supplies will allow them to explore their creativity. The class prizes are my management system, this allows excitement for positive reinforcement.
