My Students

I walk into my classroom every morning with a smile, because I know that soon my students will be walking through the door. We greet each other with smiles because we are excited to be at school. That's what first grade is about, being excited to learn. Because we are a title one school, my classroom is a diverse group. I have different cultures, languages, a wide range of academic and economic groups, but we all learn to celebrate our differences and it is beautiful.

One of our classroom sayings is "we can do hard things"!

We say this every morning to remind ourselves that even when life and school are difficult we can still grow and believe in ourselves. I am amazed everyday at what my students accomplish in just one year. Many students come to first grade not knowing their whole alphabet and they leave readers!

My Project

Do you remember learning to read? Remember looking at the letters trying to make words out of them? It is hard for a lot of students, especially students that don't always have someone that reads to them.

Reading to children is one of the most powerful ways to create readers.

I love to read aloud to my students and I do it often, but I also love to incorporate it into my students independent learning centers. This is why I love to have a listening center in my classroom. My current listening center has been well used and very loved, but it is old and falling apart.

We are in need of new headphones and books. We need chairs that are comfy and inviting. I want my students to look at the listening center as a place to open a book, listen and relax!

I want them be able to sit down at the listening center, find a book they love and follow along as it is read to them. It is a game changer for students in the primary grades. Please help me create a love for reading in my classroom by helping us a get a comfy and inviting listening center!
