My Students

I work in a very high needs school in the Bronx. We have limited access to learning tools and books. I am looking for ways to make learning more accessible to my students. My students are in a general education classroom. They are an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are reading above their grade level and others are struggling to sound out words and make meaning of what they are reading. My goal, as a teacher, is to meet students where they are and motivate them to go above and beyond. My students love and thrive when working with hands on materials in the classroom. My students come from low income families and are so grateful for everything in my classroom to help them learn.

These projects will allow me to bring exciting and educational projects to the families in our school community to foster the love of learning and expose them to new ideas.

With your help, I can make my students more well rounded.

My Project

Students thrive off of a welcoming and neat classroom setting. They spend a big chunk of their lives in a classroom. Having these bins in the classroom would help my students be organized to benefit their learning. The colors will bring brightness and comfort in my room- things that a first grade student needs in their daily life.

They can take the organizational skills they learn and use them for the rest of their life, in and out of the classroom.

My classroom doesn't have desks with storage for students. We only have tables- therefore students don't have an area to hold their folders and notebooks. These bins will allow them to organize their folders and notebooks.

An organized classroom will help students get started quickly on their class work and get them in a routine they need to be successful learners. The calendar will give my students knowledge of days of the week and months of the year. Students will be able to know which holidays are in that month. These materials will only benefit the daily lives of my bright first grade students.
