My Students

First grade is an amazing group of students to teach! These students are fun an energetic about their education. My group of students is unique because they are all classified as English Language Learners (EL). The diversity in this class allows each student to not only learn from each other, but to compare and contrast the difference between their background and the English language they are learning. Having a working knowledge of a language other than English allows these students the opportunity to use what they know and apply it to what they are learning inside of the classroom.

My Project

My first graders struggle to keep their desk organized. Each student has a different color folder and notebook. It can be take a lot of time trying to locate items in their desk. It is especially difficult for my students who need to see what they are looking for. I want to help them get organized by separating their materials in their folders into separate subjects. This way we all have the same type of binders and we can easily locate the materials that we will need for that section. Please help me prepare these wonderful children to be organized and prepared young people.
