My Students

My students are a diverse group of learners who attend a Title I public elementary school in Northern California. My first graders are curious, empathetic, and insightful students. Our classroom is a special community because of the children that fill it, and they each bring their own cultural and life experiences with them. They come from all walks of life, and they rely deeply on the structure that our classroom brings to their daily lives.

First grade is all about creating community through classroom gatherings, meetings, and shared learning experiences.

We spend a lot of our day gathered together on our rug learning, sharing, and discussing ideas with each other. My students learn how to listen with their whole bodies, respond to their classmates with academic language, and they are empowered to learn as much as they can.

My Project

We need a new classroom easel to improve upon our current learning environment. An easel is such a vital part of a first grade classroom. It's a tool we use to practice shared reading and writing, to display anchor charts, big books, and other important learning tools, and it gives kids an opportunity to be engaged in and interact during lessons.

This easel will provide a more functional, comfortable, and engaging learning space during our time together on our rug.

Also, the close proximity of an easel compared to a regular white board increases student engagement and allows for a smaller, less busy area for them to focus on. The storage component will organize important resources accessible to the students, like math tools, magnetic letters, and many shared writing materials.
