My Students

First grade is an amazing grade. Students come to school with a wide range of skills. Some students have formal education from kindergarten and some do not. They all have energy and excitement and want to learn. My students are ELL (English Language Learners). They come from diverse backgrounds of families that speak multiple languages.

My goal is to make my classroom a welcoming space where my students feel at home.

Learning is a passion I want to share with my students.

My students are in the beginning of their school career. They are learning how to work cooperatively and need the tools and the environment to become successful 21st century students.

My Project

My students need to be able to read and comprehend high quality materials. Unfortunately in my district materials are in short supply. With a document camera I can project books on the screen for large groups of learners. The document camera will allow me to model how to read and use complex texts and materials. Students will be able to see me read and read along with me as I read to them. I read many books throughout the day and I try to show as much of the book as I can, but often times students are unable to see or miss picture clues in the story because of the size of the book in my hand. A document camera would allow me to share more books.
