My Students

My school is a Title I charter in San Francisco. Mostly made up of English Language Learners, our room is constantly working on the acquisition of new vocabulary and better understanding multiple languages through literature.

My room is full of hilarious, genuine, and vocal first grade minds who exhibit a natural curiosity for the ever-evolving world around them.

A typical day looks chaotic and sounds rowdy. We are an active bunch that loves to learn through discussion, movement, and projects. All in all, there is simply nothing typical about this inquisitive bunch.

My Project

We have very limited access to our laminating machine at school and therefore, we are not able to properly maintain and protect their work. The students will be able to create flash cards for sight words, which will reinforce their reading skills; they will be able to create math flash cards for problem solving games and math facts; we will be able to make classroom charts for our literacy station and collages. Lastly, this will help protect their hard work that is student created!

We will also start laminating non-fiction articles.

This will allow my students to annotate as they read. Dry-erase markers will be used to circle new words, identify main ideas, and not important facts. Your generosity and kindness is much appreciated.
