My Students

I have fabulous students and I hope they achieve all of their dreams. I spend every single day helping them believe that dreams do come true. I have students that are far behind all the way to students that could be in second grade. I strive every day to make them believe in themselves and their abilities. Most of my students are not from this country and I love to hear about their culture and their lives. I care for my students.

My Project

I have students that are far below level. The audio books and audio center will help these students with word recognition. The soft seats will further my quest to make reading fun. I have tools that they can use and I do Flashlight Friday where I have a fireplace on the smart board and it even makes the fire crackling sound. I love to make reading fun. The primary journals will give my students one place for their writing. They will be able to see their progress, I will be able to see the progress and so will the parents. My students love free draw to express themselves and they are running through the paper that I have and it is hard for me to keep buying it because I am a single mother.
