My Students

My first grade students are creators, innovators, and problem-solvers. They are excellent communicators, public speakers, and curious researchers. They are driven and motivated but also considerate and kind hearted despite the hardships that some of them experience. Not only do my first graders come from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, but they have varied learning styles as well. Many of my students are visual and kinesthetic learners who crave access to hands on materials. Giving my students access to these materials will prepare them for a better future.

My Project

My students use expo markers for our literacy and math stations every day. They also use expo markers when they practice our weekly spelling words or math strategies on their whiteboards. Often times, we run out of expo markers quickly and will have multiple students sharing markers. My students take great care of the markers and are very considerate about keeping the cap on tight. However, the constant use of the expo markers during our learning causes them to dry out quickly. By receiving a large supply, my students can always have individual access to expo markers to reinforce their learning.
