My Students

My school is a Title I school and has been designated as being the highest poverty in our district. Our school is a place where collaboration and parent involvement are the keys to social and academic growth in our students. We have a safe and nurturing environment to help students blossom. My students are beautifully unique and embrace learning.

My students will change the world for the better.

They are innovative, loving, generous, kind, and are very grateful for all of the challenges and blessings that life brings. These kids inspire our entire school. They always want to know more, and the result of their growth every day is incredible.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! The hands on materials will help students practice phonic such as practicing short vowel, digraphs, and blends. These wonderful centers will allow students to review or enrich their learning. The math base ten will give students visual and hands on learning on a concept that can be somewhat abstract in the first grade.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students that are able to master phonic skills in the primary grades are at a greater advantage of becoming more proficient readers. As well as making math as concrete in the early grades so the students are able to grasp the concepts.
