My students are "my kids." I am single and not married, which makes me consider them as my own at this moment in time. They are first graders. The ages range from 6-8, with diverse learning abilities as well as personalities!
We are a family in our classroom and the more we can make our classroom feel like home the happier we can be to learn!
First graders need and like to move around...A LOT. Learning takes place during task center time, when students break into small groups as well as individually to complete activities. "The carpet" is a common area that we connect and come together to learn as a whole. It is a place to sit and relax when applying new learning skills and concepts. We would love and use a new area rug since we desperately need a new one to better meet our needs.
Help! We need 20 headsets in our classroom! Each of my students has an iPad in the classroom. They do many of their daily learning rotations for both ELA and Math on various programs/apps. Many of my students have broken or lost their headsets, and this would allow every child to have the same quality of hearing while working during center rotations. I have purchased some additional pairs, but cannot afford any more and would love to have them all look and sound the same.We would appreciate this so much and continue to use these as long as possible, thank you!
