My Students

My second graders are all unique in their own ways. Some are more reserved, while others are quite active the majority of the day. Their interest levels are all over the board, just like their learning abilities, effort, and their participation. The boys and girls in my class have contagious personalities that I just adore.

Their growing minds have so much to soak up and I want to instill the importance of being a responsible and respectful learner, helper, and kind person so they can grow up into an outstanding, kind-hearted individual in our society.

I have seen their kindness throughout each day, and yes, I've seen it with all of these 6 and 7-year-olds. Kindness is contagious and I want it to show by being able to give each of my 17 students their own materials to use at home during this difficult time. I want this transition period to be as easy as possible for my students and their families.

My Project

During this difficult time not being able to be there for my students I want to bring smiles to their faces. Surprising my seventeen students with these items would help my anxiety of not being there for them and will just make them so happy!

I adore each and every one of my second grade kiddos and I want them to remember that I'm still here for them.

As I'm writing this I'm just imagining their expressions when they see the LEGO sets, flashcards, and I Wish You More books. It makes me even smile more just thinking about it.
