My Students

This is my second year teaching 1st grade. My Students are learning how to be independent!

We are a Title I school, meaning many of our students come from poverty stricken homes.

Some of them do not have parental support at home after school. Therefore, they are excited to come to school and learn.

Your funding will help them learn interactively about Vowel sounds, Blends, and Digraphs. This is a very needed skill for them to be able to read.

My Project

This projector is very needed in my classroom. All of my students are visual learners. It is imperative that they be able to see the directions as I am explaining them. They often get confused as I am explaining and they can not see. The Elmo would enable us to help the visual learners that they are. It would also aid in facilitating sorting assignments. It is very difficult to explain sorting assignments to a group of kids without showing them. I appreciate that you have a heart to help my students learn more efficiently. I know this will fully benifit them!
