My Students

All of my students live in a large city in Michigan and receive free lunch. Many of my students come to me speaking little or no English. Here, at our wonderful school, there is something for everyone. Even the parents like to engage in our learning opportunities.

My students don't like sitting around; they like to be engaged and to explore new things.

As their teacher, I would like to make available a wide variety of learning materials so they can engage and learn in a variety of ways. I also want to make sure they are well fed so they can concentrate on learning and not hunger pains.

My Project

Young learners love to have a variety of tools to use to learn and practice writing. Having Ticonderoga pencils, Dr. Grip pens, and copy papers in the classroom for my students to use will help them to become comfortable and confident with handling pencils to form letters. The more they practice the better they will become at forming letters in their name.

Having dry erase boards and Expo markers will allow students to practice writing and create an awareness of being kind to the environment.

The Elmer's glue sticks will come in handy in our art area. The Crayola washable watercolor paint sets will allow creativity to flow and help develop my students fine motor skills.
