My Students

My students are a group of amazingly smart and inquisitive first graders!

In first grade, students learn the foundational skills they need to help them be successful throughout their educational careers.

We have a diverse community of students with a high number of English Language Learners.

As is true for schools in many California districts, our school is facing budget cuts which are making it difficult to provide these students with the supplemental supplies they deserve. Any donation will truly change this classroom and provide a deep and enriching school experience.

My Project

In first grade, we explore the objects that we find in the sky and try to identify patterns that we observe. Help us get supplies to make our learning more hands-on and engaging.

I am requesting a light projector, star stickers, pipe cleaners, and other supplies to make projects that represent what we can see in the sky.

The students learn best when they are doing and I am hoping that this project will make lifelong connections. The space light projector we will use during our silent reading time to make it feel like we are in the stars.
