My Students

I teach the most incredible six and seven-year-olds. My students come from very diverse backgrounds. Our school serves midtown neighborhoods, students from a homeless shelter and safe house, and English-language learners from many different countries. We are all so different and yet, our class feels like a family. We challenge each other, learn from each other, and love each other every day.

My students are incredibly curious, inquisitive, thoughtful, hard-working, and kind!

They help each other out, learn from each other, ask great questions, share ideas and hugs, complement each other, challenge each other, and come to school eager to learn every day. I am an incredibly lucky teacher to have such a sweet, ambitious group of six and seven-year-olds!

My Project

Our literacy time is one of my favorite parts of the school day. My students absolutely love the different center-type learning activities that they get to "visit" each week.

I love changing up these literacy learning activities frequently to keep engagement high for my little learners, and new phonics activities will help to keep these centers exciting!

Lakeshore makes such high-quality literacy activities that withstand the test of time for first-grade learners. I would love to provide my students with some new phonics, sight word, and word work activities for them to use when we are back in the classroom soon!
