My Students

My 1st grade team has some amazing kiddos and the families at my school rock. Our kids come to school every day excited to learn something new and we come to school excited to teach them!

First grade is an exciting time in a child's life--they grow as readers and writers which allows them to experience the world in new and interesting ways.

Helping students communicate their ideas and build on one another's thinking are my favorite parts of my day.

My Project

These school supplies will be shared by the entire first grade. The 1st grade teachers are hoping this process is easier than your typical school supplies shopping experience and saves some money buy purchasing supplies in bulk. If we divide the total cost by the number of students we expect to have in 1st grade, the cost is between $20 and $25 per student. However, please contribute the amount you feel most comfortable with spending on school supplies for your child's classroom.

We will use markers, crayons, and pencils to write and draw about their learning about all sorts of topics--reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.

Students use flair pens as writing pens to share their ideas using a writing tool that is extra special and easier to use than a pencil. Glue holds us all together and erasers help clean up the mistakes we all make. Studying word work and spelling patterns uses many supplies--scissors to cut apart words, and markers to practice writing words in different ways.
