My Students

I have not yet had the opportunity to meet my students this year. This will be my first year teaching, and I am very eager to get started. My heart is full of excitement to get to learn right along with my kids this year. While I teach them, they will unknowingly be teaching me a ton as well.

I am super excited to get to know all of my kids and watch their little minds grow.

There is just something about watching a child's eyes light up when they learn a new skill that really drives me to want to make a difference every day.

My Project

These materials will make a big difference in my classroom by giving me plenty of resources to aid my students in their learning. My students need a positive learning environment to grow their little minds. Please help me to provide this to them in every way possible.

I want to be able to give them every opportunity to have fun while they learn in my class.

On this list are things such as reading center materials, informational wall posters, storage spaces, learning games and more. I included materials for reading centers to be used during small group instruction such as dry erase pockets and writing skills card games. I also selected some posters and pocket charts to display informational resources for my students. The rest of the materials are basic essentials that I would need on a daily basis in my classroom: pencil sharpener, hole punch, EZ grader. I really feel as if these things are important for my students to be able to have access to and for myself to instruct them to the best of my ability. Thank you in advance for all contributions.
