My Students

In my first grade class, I have 24 students, ages 6 and 7. I teach at an inner-city school where my students and their families are of lower socio-economic status and speak Non-standard English or Spanish as a first language.

One of my main areas of focus has been obtaining resources that will assist my students in meeting the rigorous Common Core Standards, as well as developing their 21st Century Skills.

My students are special because they learn best through the use of various modalities, including visual, kinesthetic, and auditory. My plan is to improve the visual and auditory learning opportunities for my students through the use of a large teaching easel. By using a large teaching easel, I will be able to design instruction that meets my students’ needs by blending words and sentences on the whiteboard, as well as by using the easel to display big books and charts for visual learning during reading, math, and other subjects. Your help with this project will make these goals more attainable.

My Project

With this teaching easel, I will have the mobility and flexibility needed to teach whole group and small group lessons for my students, focusing on blending words and writing sentences, as well as working on math concepts. These lessons will help serve as developmentally appropriate visual aids for my students and will help address auditory development as well. Having a large easel for lessons will help during shared reading opportunities with my students through the use of charting and big books. Shared reading is an essential part of balanced literacy and a large easel will make learning much more accessible for my students!
