My Students

My first grade class has gone from hands-on exploring and learning to trying to learn to use computers and worksheets. Most of my students have very little experience with computer work and some don't even have access to internet.

I am committed to getting quality materials for teaching online and for students at home.

I was able to get some materials from my classroom, but I did not realize how many things I need for teaching at home.

My Project

With this pandemic I have fought hard to continue helping my students learn the skills they need to be successful in life. My students were learning how to read, write, and do simple addition and subtraction before school closures. Now my spare room is my classroom. Therefore, it is very important that I have the resources to help them grasp the concepts and skills they need to succeed in the next school year.

iPads and earbuds are necessary for students to access our Google Classroom and participate in Google Meetings.

Our school was able to provide some laptops, but first grade students do not have a lot of experience with computers. They are much more comfortable with using tablets.
