My Students

My first graders attend a great school in Northern California. The school that I work for is in a high-poverty area. Some of my students face the normal things that are often associated with poverty. These obstacles do not impact their love for school. My students love to learn new things and are very excited about learning how to read.

I am very happy that I work at a school where the staff really believes that all students can achieve academic success with the right support and mindset.

My Project

My students need clear write on wipe off pouches to hold their various templates as well as dry erase markers. This will save paper, but still allow students space to practice various skills. This will be very useful during math-time when students are working with me in small groups. They can use the wipe-off boards to make equations to match the picture, and solve equations. They can hold it up for immediate feedback from peers or myself.

I am also asking for some hands- on resources to support phonics and math.

My young students need to move and benefit when content is presented and practiced in a variety of ways.

I am also asking for some reproducible books to provide extra practice in reading.
