My Students

Our first grade Spanish immersion class is a quite hardworking class. They love school and enjoy learning concepts in a new language(Spanish). We have chromebooks and used them for our centers in literacy and math. Having our computers ready to be used would help them safe time during transitions.

My Project

Our classes are full of activities that requiere movement and independent choices. Students don’t have desks with a personal place to locate their belongings. For this reason I am asking you if you could donate chair bags. I got 8 from PTA last year during covid, now it would be great to have one for each member of our class. With this bags on their chairs, students will have their materials handy and they will be able to focus more on their lessons. Thank you in advance for your help.
