"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." ~Frederick Douglass
Every day, I welcome 60 first grade minds into my classroom who simply cannot wait to learn to read.
They know that reading unlocks a whole new world of freedom and adventure.
Located in Washington, DC, my students attend a Title I school where 99% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. When my students arrive to 1st grade, many of them are still getting comfortable with books and are reading below grade level. Despite this, I expect that all my students be reading on or above grade level by the end of the school year-and most importantly, my students and I are striving to build our love of reading together. Our school's vision is "a child-centered and diverse learning community that provides each student with the opportunity, resources and foundation to reach his or her full potential, achieve well-rounded citizenship and enjoy multicultural enrichment in a safe, supportive and challenging environment.” My students' constant love of learning fosters an environment of adventure, growth and support in my classroom.
My project will give my students sturdy headphones that they can use with the wonderful iPads that were donated to my classroom.
They will use the headphones to work on Lexia which is a reading program that provides individualized reading instruction, intervention and practice.
These headphones are great because they have rope cords that won't get tangled or easily destroyed.
The colorful Jenga games will be a wonderful addition to our Fun Friday routine. We borrowed another teachers set and the students loved it! We also are in need of pencils for the students to use every day in class for their writing assignments and packing tape for various classroom posters, center activities, etc.
