First Grade Phonics and More

Help me give my students these different materials that will help support phonics word-work and all other learning. We use essential oils every day in our classroom, and the students love learning what they can do!

My Students

My students have a creative passion that they bring out in the classroom to make it feel like more than just a class but like a family! Their dedication and hard work amaze me every day. I have many strong-headed and passionate kids that have their own individuality, so being able to provide many options to them is extremely important to me.

I love how my students never let anyone else's dreams or ideas stand in the way of their own.

They are so good at trying their best and never giving up, and it makes me so proud.

My Project

Phonics is a major key aspect of learning for children at this age and these materials will help my students practice it in fun ways! We use essential oils and promote kindness every day in our class ,and we love having a variety of things to use to help us all learn. Being a first-year teacher of my own classroom it is not always easy trying to access what I think may help my students, so using this website has really supported me a ton in making my classroom everything that I have always dreamed it to be. We appreciate any donations in advance!
