My Students

They say the only way to do great work is to love what you do. And I, not only love what I do, I love the children who are part of that work. My students each have different dreams and different needs. We love to dance at 'wiggle breaks', sing songs as we work on math, read while we eat lunch and grow our brains so we can go to college!

As I continue my teaching journey, I need engaging books and educational games for my first graders to help them learn and grow.

As reading is a fundamental skill, I want to make sure I have a library stocked with books of all ranges and lengths. I also want to ensure that learning can be fun through engaging and educational games.

My Project

Classrooms need to feel clean and safe, as well as be full of engaging activities and materials. My students will get to learn from educational games and puzzles, as well as read diverse books. Some things that will help students stay engaged are: board games, puzzles, diverse books, recess equipment. I plan to use these resources in reading and math centers to allow students to use hands-on materials to learn and engage.

In addition, our classroom needs basic supplies, such as pencils, erasers, books, and cleaning supplies - things that all kids deserve and should have.

We plan to use these materials to continue learning in first grade and grow our brains. Having a clean classroom is something we all need, and I plan to use Lysol spray/wipes and Air Wick Freshners to keep the classroom smelling and looking clean. When students have a clean and safe environment to learn in, they are able to learn and grow!

Other materials that will be used on a regular basis are pencils and erasers - and boy do we run through those fast! I will ensure students also have school supplies at home by sending home supplies that they need to complete their homework, too.

With your support, we will be able to have a healthy class, stay engaged and be on the journey to and through college with a year of SUCCESS!
