My Students

I teach 1st grade in an inner city school district. My students are sweet, lovable children who sometimes come from low income households. Over the pandemic, my families impressed me with how they stepped up to the challenge of distance learning. They worked hard to make sure that their children were engaged. I was so proud of the children and their families!

My Project

The individual dry erase boards I have selected will allow my first grade students to have the best learning experience whether they are at home or in school. I have found through my 25 years of teaching that students love dry erase activities and are very eager during these lessons! The tabletop easel is a perfect tool to use during small group lessons. It will be extremely helpful for building high frequency words and words that need to be “tapped out” or “sounded out” . The magnetic component is always a great attention keeper as well.
