My Students

First grade is an exciting year full of many social and developmental changes. I have a very engaged group of students and they love to learn. However, there are times when “teachable moments” are interrupted due to outdated and insufficient materials, that I am using to teach them.

Our 100-year-old school is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural school, serving students in pre-l through 8th grade.

We celebrate diversity on a daily basis and look for ways to create a learning environment that appeals to all types of learners. We are nestled in a south side Chicago neighborhood, walking distance from a large university.

My Project

First graders love hands-on activities and self selected learning. To some outsides it may seem like students are "just playing", they are actually learning quite a bit. Hands on play activities are important for children to develop and practice many different skills.

The materials selected in this project are classroom favorites that have been worn down with years of interactive activities.

I am requesting manipulatives that are an essential part of differentiated, student choice learning.

Magnetic PicassoTiles are used during math lessons to study attributes, patterns and build 3 dimensional structures. Paint supplies are used in all subjects are a creative way to demonstrate learning. Dry erase boards are essential to all learning and a wonderful way to assess students knowledge, without the excessive use of paper.
