My Students

My enthusiastic students are beginning readers that enjoy learning about a variety of subjects. They love sharing what they have learned with those around them. My students come from diverse backgrounds, and many are new to our area. Our school is only three years old, and we are developing a strong educational community.

The most amazing thing about first graders is the energy and joy they bring to all that they do!

They are excited to learn new things, and it is my pleasure to guide them on their educational journey.

My Project

These math centers and math games would help my students practice math skills in a fun and active way. My students love working with partners and small groups, and these materials would allow them to work together on social skills and review math concepts.

Students learn best when they are doing hands on, high interest activities.

I would use the materials during our center review time each week. These materials are easily adapted to reach all students, and would allow me to meet the needs of everyone, regardless of their level.

My first graders love math, and I hope to further that love by providing them an engaging curriculum.
