My Students

My students are an enthusiastic group of first graders. I teach a group of first graders who love learning and going to school. If you were to ask my students what their favorite subject is, you would get a wide range of answers including math, reading, social studies, science, and art.

Our school is very small but diverse.

Most of my students are from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Our school is a Title I school. Most of my first graders are Limited English Proficient.

My Project

The items I am requesting for my classroom are items that will make being successful in my classroom easier. I am asking for classroom supply caddies so that each group of my students can have their supplies right there within their reach when working in class. I am also requesting an all supply caddy to organize our crayons by color. For Math I am requesting two dry erase answer board caddies. These will work in storing our write and wipe dry erase boards during group time. I am also asking for magnetic display shelves to hold our decodable readers that we will be working on during small group reading time. The rotating store it all caddy will work great holding supplies at our small group table. Finally the pocket chart stand will help us organize our spelling pattern charts and phonics poems.

Donations to this project will help my students be able to work in class in a more organized manner.

My students will have all the supplies they need to be successful. The tabletop caddies, all supply caddy, answer board caddies, magnetic book shelves, rotating store it all caddy, and pocket chart stand will be used for many years to come. Thanks for donating to my project.
