My Students

Since we were asked to close our school on March 16, my students and their families have been learning from home. I work for a low socioeconomic community. My students are ready and willing to learn, but it would be a better place to learn if they had specific supplies in the classroom. About 75% of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and nearly 70% are English language learners.

I want to be able to help reach my students even if it is through packets and Zoom meetings.

My Project

Since my students are young, they need fine motor practice. Making age-appropriate packets will assist my students' education.

Once I make the packets and send them home, I will do Zoom lessons with my students and parents as well as record instructional video lessons to assist their learning.

I will also use the blank paper to make science journals for the students so they can go for walks and journal what they find around their house, do scavenger hunts, and many more activities. I can also make fun coloring pages, games, and other fun activities to further learning.
