My Students

My students are busy first graders who are beginning to build on their previous experiences and are finding new ways to explore their talents and skills.

The kids are inquisitive, excitable and hands-on learners- Each day brings new discoveries!

My class is one of 14 first grade classes in a Title I school. We have a very transient population due to a large military affiliation. We are also a digital anchor school that provides students with 1:1 technology opportunities. In addition to these supports, we are a Leader in Me school and we are implementing positive behavior interventions- teaching our students leadership,respect and responsibility.

My Project

In an age of digital immersion, the concept of time management and accountability are areas where students struggle. My students need a visual timer to aid them in understanding the passage of time and to help them take responsibility for how to use their time wisely.

My students are ready to explore the world around them, but often have difficulty providing evidence for their thinking.

The magnetic write & wipe boards will provide a way for the students to be able to show their thinking and build the expressive vocabulary needed to communicate their thoughts. The 10 frame dice will have provide number fluency practice in a familiar form, while still giving the opportunity to practice effective communication.
