As a Title I school, our student population is impoverished. My students come from challenging backgrounds; however, they arrive each day, ready to learn and reach their potential. They are eager to learn new information and share it with the world. Our class has a motto: we always strive to do and be our very best!
Every year, I set high goals for my students.
I want them to become avid readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, artists, and explorers. Through inquiry and dialogue, I want them to become critical thinkers.
My ultimate goal is to create a classroom of students who love learning! I want my students to become independent learners who are not afraid to take learning risks; students who engage in experiential learning, and who persist in problem-solving. I want my students to learn to work collaboratively with their peers and to be creative.
Every day, our classroom is buzzing with students at work, challenging themselves and each other. My amazingly curious first graders are eager to learn each and every day!
We are about to embark in a Non-Fiction Unit of Study.
First graders are memorized by the world around them.
What better way to learn about all of the amazing things this world has to offer than through colorful, engaging, and educational National Geographic Readers.
Imagine my students' amazement and delight when they open up the boxes of these new, wonderful, and exciting books. Help me make each lesson and their independent reading time more engaging for my students with these books.
These new readers will allow my students to learn facts and vocabulary about new themes and animals. They will provide each of my students motivating materials that will help them learn about the world around them.
