My Students

My twenty-one wonderful First grade learners come from very diverse backgrounds and nationalities. Many of them come from single-parent homes, or are in transitional housing just out of homelessness. Others come from homes with 2 working parents. We are truly a close, kind classroom family that treat each other with respect. Every day we are thrilled to spend the day together in learning. Our classroom is a safe, exciting place to learn.

Our school is a Public Title I funded school with more than 75% of our children qualifying for services.

We are also an IB International School, so our school focus is learning through inquiry.

My Project

This listening center is vital to bring our classroom literacy learning up to what my students need to move along in their reading confidence and success.

I had an older version of this exact center, but it only lasted 25 years, and now needs replaced as it no longer works.

Not having this center, makes me realize what an important role it played in helping my students learning success.

First grade is a key year in moving students along in their literacy skills, which is why this listening center is a key tool in helping move students along in their learning.
