My Students

My students are excited to learn and are really an energetic bunch. They are excited to learn and love to use technology. They love to be read to and love to share what they know. Being able to share our learning with each other and learn together is key.

We love to be active in our learning and are always looking for new things to help us.

Our school district and community is struggling financially to meet the needs of our students. So we are looking for support and creative ways to keep the focus on learning and provide for all students.

I am impressed with their thinking everyday. I can't wait to see how much they grow over the year.

My Project

This year, our school has introduced the Jolly Learning Curriculum in kindergarten and first grade. This is a program that has proven tremendous academic growth in schools all over the world. I have received training and begun implementing the phonics program in my classroom with great success. In order to teach this program successfully, I will need a few more resources. I need the workbooks (teacher and student), big books and dictionaries.

Students are enjoying learning letter sounds and grammar.

The items I have requested will allow me to use Jolly Grammar in its entirety.

My hope is children will continue to enjoy learning in a way that is fun and reaches multiple learning styles.

Thank you!
