My Students

I have a wonderful group of 23 first graders from a rural area in central Arkansas. It is a diverse group of personalities and backgrounds that include ELLs. Greater than 50% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our students are from military families, have special needs, and most importantly, are awesome kids who are eager to learn!

My first graders are brimming with enthusiasm and excitement for learning, life, friends, and interests.

We jump into projects with both feet, make big plans, work at a breakneck pace, and don't miss a thing!

My Project

We use loads of construction paper in 1st grade. It's a staple! Just last week we crafted through more than 100 sheets drawing and labeling Johnny Appleseed, writing about being the "apple of our teacher's eye" on apple red construction paper, and drawing and labeling pirate maps after we read "How I Became a Pirate".

We use construction paper to draw, craft, create, and respond to our writing.

I like to call these responses craftivities.

We use a bunch of construction paper to make our learning meaningful, fun, and memorable by incorporating art and creativity. So I'm asking for the simplest thing you can imagine, an assortment of colored construction paper that we can use to bring our learning to life this year. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
