My Students

My first grade students come from all different backgrounds and cultures. My class consists of English language learners and native English speakers. They are competitive and they set goals to be excellent!

My students are always ready to learn as their supportive families belong to a hard-working community.

Our school sets high expectations for our students and we want the best for all of our students. It is important that students work in a classroom environment that will promote positive growth in academic and social-emotional development.

My Project

A new classroom rug will provide a comfortable meeting area for students. It will be clean and large enough to fit 25 students. They will be able to sit in a cross-legged position without having to struggle for space.

My students will be able to start the day in a positive environment by gathering on the rug for morning greeting and morning meeting.

The rug will be a community space that the children would want to stay in all the time. Students will learn and practice strategies on the rug to become strong readers and writers. They will be actively engaged in math and in discussions about families during social studies. Collaborative learning will take place on the rug as students develop eye-opening concepts by talking about their science investigations.

My students will finish their school day on the rug by sharing ideas that foster social-emotional growth.
