My Students

I have 21 fun and energetic students who love to be in school. They love to explore and are really beginning to understand print concepts!

We are a high needs school with a diverse group of fantastic students.

The students are learning at extreme rates, but I want to be able to help them instantly know if they are understanding the concepts.

We have flexible seating to help us get the wiggles out! My students are unique and love to learn about new things. I believe that they should have the opportunity to learn in the way they need to. They need engaging and fun materials that are engaging for all.

My Project

My classroom needs more books on how to keep our planet green and clean. We want to take care of what we have, but many of the students in my classroom have never been a part of learning how to take care of the earth. We do not have many visuals to guide us, or books to keep us engaged. These books and activities would be beneficial to all my diverse learners. We need the books on planting seeds to know how to sustain a garden. We would love to put the books about recycling bottles to use by doing recycling in our classroom and at our homes as well.
