My Students

My first grade students love to learn! Every morning they walk into our classroom with a big smile. They love to read, to be read to, play math games, work on coding and write stories. They are curious and inquisitive children, and they challenge me every day to grow with them and be the best I can be.

We work hard to create a classroom community where students can explore, wonder, and discover the world around them.

We ask questions, share our ideas, expand our learning environment using technology, and publish our work to share with the world. They work and collaborate with one another to learn.

Our school also focuses on character building. Children's kindness and compassion are recognized and celebrated. We are proud to be a part of an amazing school. We are family. We learn, play, laugh and grow together!

My Project

A class meeting area should look fun and inviting. Our class would love to have a large carpet that has colorful circles to sit on when we meet on the floor. It will give students sense of community and belonging to sit together as a class on a carpet. It also will teach young children about physical space and how to respect other students' space by staying in their own spot.

My students spend many hours in the classroom everyday.

They should have a nice environment that would support their development and learning. I can already see my students wanting to come and sit on the carpet square to learn when I call them to the floor!
