I am a first-year teacher in Stockton, California. This school year, I will have my first classroom ever of first graders! I am so excited to begin this journey of teaching brilliant young minds.
My goal is to provide differentiated instruction to allow each student to reach their full academic and personal potential.
It is my job to establish a positive community where students feel safe, feel valued, and feel they are able to express themselves! My school in Stockton Unified is categorized as Title I school so I would appreciate any donations. Every day I will bring enthusiasm and creativity to my classroom to create lifelong learners.
These materials will overall have a positive and direct effect on my students’ learning.
I believe these materials will help my students be more engaged and promote them to be lifelong learners!
The flexible seating pack (the low to the ground table and chairs) are exactly what my squirmy and eager first-grade readers need. The flexible seating has proven to improve learning across grade levels. The STEM activities will give my students the hands-on experience to enhance their brains. Our school has limited supplies and funding for new academic experiences. I want my first graders to be exposed to all subjects. Last but not least, the monthly Scholastic news articles will enrich my students ELA AND Science curriculum. The package includes one article per student once a month. My district does not have curriculum so this would be an asset to our day. These Scholastic articles will overall bring joy and real-life connections to reading.
I am so excited to use these amazing resources in my classroom!
