My Students

This past year my building closed and I will be teaching 2nd grade at a new school with brand new students. I am very excited and look forward to starting a new school year but I am need of some supplies for my students to be successful. As I set up my classroom I would like to organize the materials needed for lessons and projects and set up a student-friendly environment. Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning!

My Project

Unpacking books, organizing materials and setting up a new classroom this fall will be challenging.

All of the materials will be used in my classroom for my students.

The decor items will create a warm welcoming environment. The office supplies (tape, markers, etc.) will be used by the students to aid with anchor charts and projects. The heavy-duty folders will be used as communication folders that go back and forth from home to school and will aid in organization. The measuring tapes will be used during our measurement unit in Math. Now every student will have their own to use.
