My Students

Six and seven year-olds are just about the most enthusiastic people on the planet. If you were to walk into my classroom and ask them what they are learning you might hear "I'm learning to be a better reader." "I'm getting smarter in math."... but you will also hear "I'm learning to be kind." "I'm learning to persevere."

We are a classroom family and more than anything I want for my students to feel important, empowered and part of something special - to own their dreams and their education.

I hope you will consider supporting these amazing kids with this request and other projects that make our classroom a great place to be.

My Project

Fairy tales provide the perfect opportunity for first graders to learn to identify characters and settings, study character traits, and learn to organize and sequence stories according to their events. Story structure (beginning, middle and end) is an especially tricky concept, so reading and re-reading familiar stories is an excellent way to practice these skills.

With this collection of 10 classic fairy tales, with stories like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk, my first graders will explore and discover classics while learning critical reading skills.

The story retell props will allow a playful approach to concept development - and repetitive hands-on participation is just right for these little learners. Thank you for supporting these amazing kids on their journey to becoming lifelong readers!
