My Students

My students are wonderful first graders that love to learn and come to school. I know many from last year and I know they can't wait to start the year out.

My students are always eager to learn, but sometimes we need help to get our daily supplies for the year.

Due to home circumstances we may not all have our supplies. Help us make sure that we are all ready to learn this upcoming year.

My Project

We would love to add some new mentor text to our class library. These will help us to learn how to improve our learning as they are read aloud. They will also help us to see how authors write.

We would love to have some privacy to have quiet learning in our classroom.

Individual privacy offices will allow students to work in their own space throughout the day. Getting individual mirrors will help us see how our mouth moves to sound out signs to help us understand and write them.
