My school has over 900 students in grades K to 5 from all different backgrounds. In a district that is struggling financially, it is my struggle to make sure my students receive an education that does not reflect the lack of funding that is our reality. We have created a home away from home, a place where learning is fun.
My students are sweet, structured, eager learners that bring a smile to my heart every day.
Many of my students are English Learners making strides, but still reading below grade level. Our school is a 100% free breakfast and lunch and coming to class is the best part of their days. They have amazing potential and their backgrounds only push them further to realize their dreams and future career aspirations.
Modeling is key in first grade! This can be done easily and effectively by using an easel. The easel will keep our students in close proximity and keep them engaged in the lesson that we are teaching.
The easel can be used in any subject area!
We can read a big book using the easel. We can write an amazing story together on chart paper using the easel. We can use magnetic manipulatives to model math skills on the easel too! The easel will be utilized throughout the entire school day.
Thank you so much for helping our students have the materials they need!
