My Students

I teach in a classroom full of sweet and enthusiastic 1st grade students. They love to learn through hands-on activities. As a teacher, my goal is to provide my students with an environment where all of them can achieve despite their differences.

My students come to school each day with enthusiasm and excitement and ready to learn.

Every child in my classroom is such a unique individual that deserves the best. I love coming to work every day and seeing how excited the students are to learn.

My Project

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional resources to use during centers and will make them better writers. My students will be able to learn to channel their thoughts and energy into their daily writing. The students will learn how to write correct sentences and use correct punctuation while working independently at the writing center.

Creating an environment that encourages writing, engages the students, and promotes writing is what our students need and deserve.

Having a writing center with all of the necessary materials will help to foster a love for writing that will promote lifelong learners and writers.
