My Students

I work in an urban high poverty school district. My Kindergarteners love to please everyone that they become involved with. There is never a dull moment in our class. Every child brings their own special qualities to our classroom family.

My students come from a high-poverty area.

Our school is often times the safest place for our students. We also have many English Language Learners. Despite all of the challenges my students face, they always come to school ready to learn and please each other.

My Project

As we are planning for a new school year in these uncertain times, I am truly finding out about the families in my school. When we go back to the classroom, these materials will be used to help each one of the kids in my class to a fantastic start to a new year. Many of the parents are not going to be able to afford the basic school supplies that will help their children to be prepared to learn. The wipe off boards and markers will help the children when writing letters and sounding our words. It will also help when working on numbers. If students are still struggling with forming letters and numbers, The will be able to practice tracing with the sheet covers, and then can erase and keep practicing. This practice will hopefully make perfect.

Each student will have their own personal cubby with their name in it on one of the apples in it.

This helping to keep them organized and their belongings not touching anyone else’s. Going with the shape theme, we will be able to create learning games with the shapes so the kids can practice matching numbers, letters, and words! Let’s start them in the right direction
