My Students

I have 18 wonderful students for the 2021-2022 school year. I am a new teacher and this will be my first full year in my own classroom. I am excited to work with our first graders this year. First grade is essential when it comes to reading and I am excited to watch my students grow.

I have students who are still learning letter names and sounds and students who are able to read over 100 words in a minute so it is essential that I differentiate during our lessons to best support each student.

My Project

The Teachers Pay Teachers gift cards will help towards differentiating for my students. I have a wide range of abilities within my first grade class; from students still learning their letter names and sounds to students who are able to read over 100 words in a minute.

It is essential that I differentiate my lessons to provide the support each student needs to become a fluent reader.

The timers will help students build their fluency. We practice timed readings in the classroom and at the moment I use my classroom timer and everyone reads at the same time. Then we repeat and students try to read faster and beat their score. Having their own timers students will be able to be independent and practice responsibility as they work in their small group practicing this skill.

I have also requested materials that will be placed up in our classroom. The rack will be used to store books on our whiteboard. The boarders and paper will be used to create bulletins.
