My Students

My students are a group of amazingly smart and inquisitive first graders!

In first grade, students learn the foundational skills they need to help them be successful throughout their educational careers.

We have a diverse community of students with a high number of English Language Learners.

As is true for schools in many California districts, our school is facing budget cuts which are making it difficult to provide these students with the supplemental supplies they deserve. Any donation will truly change this classroom and provide a deep and enriching school experience.

My Project

Mindfulness is an important skill for students to master to help them cope with academic stresses as well as the pressure they feel in their everyday life.

Mindfulness helps reduce stress, anxiety, strengthen attention, and help developmental growth.

There are so many different activities revolving around mindfulness. It can be as simple as sitting in a seat and focusing on your breathing or just squeezing a stress ball until you calm down.

I need glitter jars and other jittery materials to help increase focus. The purpose of the glitter jar is to shake it up, watch all the glitter spin around until it all falls to the bottom of the jar. The glitter represents your thoughts in your head and as the glitter is settling, so are your thoughts. We also need chimes to recenter and keep our classroom calm.
