My creative, eager students are an inclusion class in a low socioeconomic community. Our class combines special need and general education students. They learn to build acceptance for different students and how to help each other as they learn. Some students have never been in a classroom while others have been in structured environments for years. I have witnessed some of the most challenging students become the biggest helpers of their classmates. My kids love to learn about places outside of their community and explore, explore, explore.
Our theme as a grade is a quote from a 3rd grade class in Philadelphia: "I can push through anything I put my mind to".
As a Title 1 school working on becoming accredited, First grade is charged to set a great foundation. My students want to do their best!
We are dedicated to building social emotional skills as well as academic skills in early learners. First grade students will benefit from activities that build their confidence in their own abilities. These resources will be put to use in our centers area for both Reading and Writing, where students will spend time working with the resources then checking themselves.
Our goal is to supplement the daily lesson plan activities.
This builds up trust between student and teacher, helps students share materials correctly and build up their confidence. Mistakes are a part of learning: we put this belief to good use by giving them tools to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. This benefits the student and teacher, preparing them for success. We will also be using materials to create better STEM lesson plans.
