My Students

First graders often come to school brimming over with enthusiasm and excitement for learning, life, friends, and interests. Theirs is an age commonly marked by tremendous growth, lost teeth, great emotional highs and less frequently some lows, First graders make big plans, jump into projects with both feet, work at a fast pace and don't want to miss a thing.

Our classroom is a family!

Our school is located on a Native American Reservation . Most of my students have had signifigant trauma in their lives . I work very hard to create a classroom where the students feel safe and loved!

My Project

I am excited to use these ipads in my room to implement a variety of reading activities! Students will be able to read books, listen to books, and record themselves reading books! They will use programs such as Reading A-Z, ebooks, and Readers Theater!

It is important to engage students in their learning.

Phonics is a huge part of First grade and there are several phonics apps that are engaging and interactive.

First grade is a year for making sure students love, live, breathe--and start to really read great books! I want to instill a love of from the very beginning!
