My Students

I teach at a high poverty school where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch! I have high expectations that they will grow and learn beyond what is expected.

School is a safe and happy place for my students.

Each day, they come into the classroom excited about the day and spending time exploring and learning together. For many of my students, being at school is the best part of their day.

My Project

These materials will help me to create fun and engaging morning work tubs. I like the idea of hands-on activities versus paper and pencil worksheets. The morning tubs will change each month, so they will have new activities to do.

It would allow us to reduce the length of our morning routine, getting students excited about learning, encouraging them to talk and collaborate with one another, but also in a safe way.

Morning Tub activities will include games and resources that will work on fine motor, math, writing, and beginning reading skills. Digital resources will include activities for sight words, beginning reading skills, math, and more.
