My Students

I teach 28 of the most energetic first graders who are eager to learn. The school is 100% economically disadvantaged and most of our students rely on meals, snacks and school supplies that they receive while at school. Most of my students face challenging obstacles that they bring to school with them, varying from homelessness, no adult supervision after school, taking on responsibilities of younger siblings and parents that can give little or no support academically. Due to the world wide pandemic receiving these resources have been extremely difficult for my students. These challenges can hinder a child's ability to focus virtually on their academics along with being engaged in a distance learning environment.

My Project

I am requesting the learning manipulatives such as the alphabet kit so that my students are able to connect letters and their sounds with real life visuals. The number sense manipulatives will allow students to visualize numbers and practice counting. I am also requesting the ring light so that my students and I will be provided with adequate lighting while I am teaching online while brightening the learning space. I have requested ink so that I may print daily notes, awards, activities and assignments for my students. These materials will enhance every students virtual learning experience.
