My Students

This coming school year will be my third year teaching at a Title I school in Northwest Arkansas, and I wouldn't change it for the world! Most of my students are English Language Learners, speaking primarily Spanish or Marshallese. They come to me with a range of abilities, cultures, and life experiences.

I want my students to know they are safe, loved, encouraged and included in our classroom regardless of where they come from.

They work hard every single day. It is so rewarding to see how much they grow in just one school year!

My Project

This project has a little bit of everything, and here is why: after two years of teaching kindergarten, I get to loop up to 1st grade with my kinder babies! New grade, same kiddos!

Moving to a new grade means we will need some new materials.

We need new books to kick off the school year and to remind everyone about manners and class expectations. I have selected a few mentor texts that will support our reading and writing units as well.

We have an Osmo in our classroom and it is a HIT! The Osmo attaches to an iPad and has hands on games that support a variety of academic skills. I have requested two new games in this project. The games will introduce my students to new math skills as well as coding.

I have requested a series of books by Andrea Beatty that tell the tales of a few very creative students and their passions for science, engineering, and architecture. I can't wait to see how these books inspire my students! In the spirit of STEM and tinkering, I also requested Legos and baseplates. These will be used for STEM challenges, brainstorming writing, building words and fine motor skills just to name a few!
