My Students

Our day is filled with Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. We work hard all day long and I want to keep learning enjoyable! I want to help them visualize their concepts.

I teach the best group of 1st graders around!

These kids are eager to learn and love being at school! My school is 100% free and reduced lunch. I also have a lot of English language learners who are always ready to learn more. These students need every opportunity they can get to see outside of their everyday world. It is a joy to see their bright-eyed faces walking into my classroom every morning! They come to school willing to learn!

My Project

There are many great educational videos out there to both engage and help my students understand/visualize many different concepts. These videos can act as great extensions or introductions to lessons or units of study. There are many wonderfully produced PBS and National Geographic Kids specials to help my students visualize their concepts. Segments from the Bill Nye and Magic School Bus series can also help my students understand many scientific concepts.

Having a DVD/VCR player in the classroom will benefit all of my students.

We currently have a very old DVD/VCR player in our classroom. Once in a while the VCR gets hungry and eats tapes and the DVD side rarely agrees to even let us insert a DVD. Please help me to modernize our technology in the classroom to help my students visualize their learning. Having educational videos to accompany lessons will especially aid my English language learners. Thank you for any help you can supply!
