Moving On Up To First Grade!

My students need new materials to help support our First Grade curriculum, including 22 writing prompts journals and 22 drawing journals, plus practice cards .

My Students

Do you remember going up to the next grade level and being excited wondering what you would learn that next year? I'm sure my kiddos are feeling that way but I need new materials to keep them engaged.

My students were in my Kindergarten class last school year.

They are moving up to First and so am I! My students come from a Title One school in Texas. They are bright, hard working and eager to learn. They love new challenges and experiences. They love school and are positive students!

My Project

I'm requesting the journal writing prompts so that students can have a warm up to do when they come in each morning. Our class has breakfast in the classroom so when students are done eating or if they have already eaten, they can get to work on something until the morning announcements begin. This will be a free time for students to write about anything they want. I would use the pick a problem math warm-up cards during calendar time as challenge questions so that we continue to spiral back to all First Grade math concepts. The common core math practice cards would be used in our math centers. I would use the rainbow scratch paper during literacy centers as a fun way to practice sight/spelling words. The daily comprehension activities and math connection reproducible will be used for homework activities. The daily reading warm-ups will be used as an introduction to our reading skill being taught each day.

These materials are important to me because I want to keep my students engaged and motivated about this school year.

I want them to be able to use different resources to help this school year stand out from the year we had last school year.
