My Students

I have twenty-five wonderful, energetic, and curious first-grade students. The students in my classroom speak a variety of languages, eight total. My school is 88% free or reduced price lunch, and that percentage is quickly rising. Forty-nine percent of the students at my school identify as Asian, 26% identify as African American, 14% identify as Hispanic, 10% identify as Caucasian, and 1% identify as American Indian.

My classroom is rich with diversity, and we celebrate each student's identity and culture.

My students are always moving. I use alternative seating, center-based learning, and differentiation to target the needs of all of my students.

In my school, the classrooms are co-taught and have a cluster of students who are just learning English or have special needs. I teach in a special education co-taught classroom. I am passionate about teaching to the needs of each of my students. I do not believe in a "cookie cutter" approach and often have each student working on something different at the same time which creates a need for more supplies.

My Project

My students need phonics activities to help grow our reading skills. We need bingo paint daubers to help us with phonics activities and make learning more fun and engaging. We also need magnetic hooks to help display things on the board. We also need a magnetic phonics kit. In first grade,​ we learn our letter sounds, blends, digraphs, and long vowels. This activity set will allow us to do vowel sorts, sound sorts, and accelerate our phonics learning!

Help us start our second half of the year off right with a classroom full of basic supplies!

We use a lot of velcro, especially making visual schedules for my students with special needs so we need more velcro as well. These things separately may seem insignificant, but they mean the world to us and help our classroom function!
