My Students

I am a 1st year teacher teaching 21 amazing first grade kiddos. They are loving, hard working, excited to learn, and deserving children. My students mainly come from low income families with little to no access to resources.

My goal is to create an inclusive classroom with various resources to help each individual student become successful in their learning.

With various resources, my students will be able to learn through all of their senses rather than one. Each child learns differently, so having opportunities in the classroom for them that speak to them will allow them to be excited about their learning and take responsibility for it too!

My Project

Listening Center resources such as portable CD players, headphones, and book and CD sets, will allow my students the opportunity to focus on the importance of learning through listening.

These materials will add educational value, by enhancing the minds of my 1st graders.

My students will have the opportunity to extend their learning through listening with these resources. This will give them an opportunity to learn critical listening skills, provides students opportunities to learn new words as well as, help them practice familiar words. Lastly, it gives students the chance to practice fluency. Having a Listening Center will allow for a differentiated resource during our independent centers.
