My Students

I teach a creative group of first-grade students. My students are inquisitive and like to question why. They are full of energy and give one hundred percent to everything they do. In our classroom, I try to bring our curriculum to life with hands-on, innovative activities.

When you take a peek in my classroom door, you will see eager faces, ready to learn.

You will see students who enjoy sharing laughter with their peers, putting their problem-solving skills to use with STEAM activities, creating artwork, and playing with their friends. I want my students to know the sky is the limit and that they should reach for the stars.

My Project

In first grade we love to read fairy tales, but or classroom library needs to be update to look more like our students. I am requesting versions of The Three Little Pigs from around the world. Book titles like The Three Little Javelinas, or The Three Little Tamales will allow students to see themselves in the stories because their culture will be represented. Little Red Riding Hood version, Caperucita Roja, will give students a chance to experience a bilingual book and to see the importance of being able to speak more than one language. The Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas version of Goldilocks will resonate with my students that frequently visit family in China. La Princesa and the Pea is inspired by the art and culture of Peru. I am also requesting scissors to use on art projects that will accompany each unit of fairy tales that we read.

It is important for us to celebrate our differences and to appreciate each other's cultures.

Through this project my students will get a glimpse into other cultures.
