My Students

On any given day when you walk in my classroom, you would see my eager students sitting on the carpet using whiteboards and markers to support blending, spelling and math lessons. My students come from diverse cultural and language backgrounds and thrive from learning from each other. Because of distance learning, my students are missing prime learning experiences in a classroom setting.

I am doing virtual teaching with my students daily/ however, since the students are now learning from home, they do not have basic classroom supplies and manipulatives that we would normally use to support instruction in whole group and small group.

My Project

Having these supplies available at home will give my students a sense of normalcy during this challenging time. My students can practice writing, decoding, blending, spelling and illustrating on the dry erase boards. Just like in our classroom, they can write in their journal and read books at their level . My students loved to read and were always excited to have new books from guided reading groups, visiting the school library, and from our classroom library. Now that we are doing distance learning, books are scarce. I will be able to provide each child with several books of their own to keep. These additional materials will enhance the distance learning experience and give my students the feel of being back in our classroom again.
