My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. As their teacher I am constantly looking for ways to help make learning fun and engaging.

My students love to read, write and participate in lots of hands on activities.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Many of my students do not have access to their own books to read or other school materials at home. When my students walk in my room I focus on their learning and their growth. I know I cannot control what happens at home, but I can control the experiences that happen at school by doing it in a positive way and by making the classroom a safe place.

My Project

In first grade we spend a lot of time learning foundational skills which are a stepping stone for the rest of the students educational experience. In our class we spend lots of time learning proper letter formation, learning how to read/write high frequency (sight) words, and essential math concepts. We also learn how to write a paragraph that includes a main idea sentence, at least 3 supporting details, transition words (first, next, then, last, etc.) and a conclusion sentence.

My students love to practice their reading, writing and math skills.

We would love a classroom set of these whiteboards to help us solidify these important skills and concepts.
