My Students

My students are dreamers, problem solvers, and likely the most creative little people you will ever meet.

They are a happy group of first graders who love school, and they love to learn.

One hundred percent of our school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch, yet they don't let hardships stand in their way. My students' economic situations are just as varied as are their family dynamics. We have military families, with a local National Guard Unit in our area and an Air Force Base close by. We aim to take good care of our military families. Our district includes an Indian Reservation, and we have a high population of Hispanic students, many of whom have family members that work in the agricultural industry.

My Project

I really like using Scholastic News in my first grade classroom. It is always a relief when I can get it renewed each year. The children learn about former Presidents, important people like Rosa Parks and Dr. Seuss, and they study and learn about things like Dental Health, environmental topics, volcanoes, weather, and lots of different animals.

Environmental education connects us to the world around us, teaching us about both natural and built environments, and it raises awareness of issues impacting the environment upon which we all depend, as well as actions we can take to improve and sustain it.

We are also requesting special chairs for the children to use in class which will give them a variety of options. The owl pellets, ladybug larvae habitat, and the Painted Lady Butterfly larvae will give the children a hands-on experience. Each year they love to watch the metamorphosis of the larvae take place.

I hope we can get these things before spring, so the children will have time to watch it all happen before the school year ends. Thank you for helping my students learn at their level and with a hands-on approach. Learning about our environment is exciting!
