My Students

I am a First Grade teacher in a large school district in Harrisburg, PA. Most of my students are from a low-income household. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

We would like to get 6 Kindle Fires for our classroom to help with math and reading skills. My students spend a good portion of their day working at stations and/or small groups. During these stations the students work on math facts and different phonics skills. The students currently use flashcards to practice their math facts and several worksheets/teacher made games to practice phonic skills. I would like to enhance their learning through several educational apps that focus on addition/subtraction and phonics/fluency. The apps will keep track of their progress and also reward the students with certifications when completing an activity.
