My Students

As young learners, my first-grade students need many opportunities to move around throughout the day. We achieve the kinesthetic movement necessary for young children by changing our location within the classroom during whole group instruction. My students also receive independent learning opportunities through reading and math stations and small group instruction where students' academic needs are met at their specific point of need. Technology is included in lessons whenever possible.

My first-grade students are energetic, creative, caring, and eager to learn.

I strive to create learning experiences where students receive meaningful learning opportunities as individuals, in small groups, and as a class.

Over half of the students in my school come from low-income families. One-third of the students in my class are English language learners who are working to learn the English language while also learning the curriculum being taught. Many of my students have a variety of factors, both in and out of school, that challenge their education. My goal is to help students overcome any hurdles they may face throughout the year by ensuring they feel safe and cared for and are given all of the tools necessary to grow both academically and emotionally.

My Project

The fluency and fitness bundle provided by this project will enable my students to practice reading and math academic skills while also burning off excess energy through movement. Movement breaks are necessary for young learners to keep their brain focused and these academic brain breaks help them review skills we have learned while also keeping their brain and body focused.

I have used the fluency and fitness products in my classroom for years and it is always a HUGE hit with my first-grade learners.

The fluency and fitness bundle will also provide my students with self-checking academic games that can be assigned for differentiated independent practice. My former students always loved when they had the chance to play these academic games through our Google Classroom.
