ELA Is About to Be so Much More Exciting!

My students need an easel for instructional time and comfy seats and books for reading time!

My Students

My students are very enthusiastic about learning! In only a week, I have already made great connections with my students and I am so excited to see what the rest of the school year brings us! My class absolutely loves read alouds, art projects, and exploring with math manipulatives! We are passionate about building relationships with each other so we can work as a team.

As a class, we will be working together to learn creatively.

I strive to differentiate instruction to fit the needs of all students.

My Project

We are asking for an easel for our classroom because we currently don't have one! Our carpet time is awesome and it is the favorite part of my students' morning. However, in order to make it flow better, we could really use an easel to help hold large books, do writers workshop instruction, and keep us organized during our phonics time! Easels are so important to teaching primary grades and it would significantly help our class out!

I would love to encourage my students to read with some big comfy pillows and soft seats as an incentive.

We currently don't have any flexible seating in our class. It would be a great help to give my students more options during our reading time if we had extra seating!
