My Students

I teach 18 hard working, silly, and amazing first grade students in a small East Texas town. I have taught first grade for 15 years and been a member of ATPE for all 15. I love what I do and love ATPE. My students love to work with hands-on activities, make creative art projects and play games. My students do not respond as positively to worksheets or seat work activities as they do to physically manipulating the words, letters, or manipulatives. My students love to work in centers or sing songs to learn new concepts. I strive to make my classroom a fun and exciting learning environment.

My Project

My students love to work with hands-on activities and play games. They do not respond as positively to worksheets or writing activities as they do to physically manipulating the words, letters, or manipulative. My students love to work in centers or sing songs to learn new concepts.

I have requested creative supplies, science kits and math kits to use in our daily learning stations.

These resources will improve both my centers and whole group instruction during my phonics block. These resources will provide fun, hands-on learning experiences for center time. I am also requesting science and phonics learning DVDs and books because my students love to sing and learn through animation.
