My Students

Our school is a Title I school since our school student population is low-income families. Therefore, we operate mostly by grants and special funding to be able to provide our students will all the learning tools needed for their learning process. Allowing them to succeed and have a high-quality education. Students at our school are eager to learn and reach their academic goals. Without the proper learning tools, these goals seem too far away to achieve.

They love to learn "hands on" meaning they like to have a positive learning experience that increases their knowledge.

Be excited and engage in their learning process is a plus for these students that struggle every day with personal circumstances like not having a permanent place to stay on daily basis, hunger, poverty and much more. As their teacher, I do what I can to provide them with the tools they need to exceed in their learning process.

My Project

Using the Practice Journals from Lakeshore, students will have the opportunity to develop and practice their Math and writing skills which are essential to succeed in their grade level. Practice makes perfection, by using this tools every single day students are able to increase and master their learning skills to achieve the common core standards for their grade level.

These materials are aligned to common core skills and standards, which will help them to do well in their state assessments and demonstrate knowledge in each learning skills.

The emphasis of daily practice is important in order for them to develop a strong Math and writing skill which stay with them forever helping them have a strong foundation to keep building up the complexity of the skills.
