Hi Wonderful Donors, I teach first grade at Oster Elementary School in San Jose, California . I have 20 great kiddos who bring joy and energy to my life. 35% of my students are on free or reduced lunch and 35% of my students are English language learners. I also have one deaf student. My students love hands on activities and I try to have as many of them as possible. For science and math, it is much simpler to find manipulatives in the everyday things. Language arts is much harder and Instant Literacy Centers make it possible. Centers are a powerful tool and allow students to work at their own level, which is great, as I have students who are reading at a second grade level, and students who are still learning their letter names and sounds. These centers will be good for my low performing students who can use them to work on letter sounds, sight words and word families. My high performing students can work on forming complete sentences and simple paragraphs. These centers will also allow students to work independently so that I can work with low performing students. Thank you for your help in supporting my students' education.
