My Students

My first graders are absolutely amazing!

They come from low economic backgrounds and live in a high poverty area.

This does not deter them from reaching for the stars. Your generous donations will allow them access to things they normally wouldn't be able to afford in our classroom. Your donation will make our classroom a much better place to learn. My students deserve nothing but the best, and with your help, they will be on their way to learning success! I thank you for your generosity and let the science learning begin! Let them discover the world in a way they have never seen before.

My Project

With these items, I will "trick" my students into learning while having a blast at the same time. With the reading journals and pencils I will create Close Reading centers with these daily text based questions journals. Some centers I will create are for reinforcing math skills with their Math Journals. Another center will have a writing prompt where they will have a subject to write about.

These centers will provide my students with opportunities to learn, not only with my direction but on their own.

Also, the printer ink will help us when we are writing final drafts of Narratives we are working on so they can print them out.

They will be able to drive their learning and be partly in control of what is being taught in the classroom. The centers would be set up so that the students will be able to move around the classroom instead of rote learning from their seat. They will have the option to choose what they will practice, instead of being force-fed the daily lesson. They will work with other students to learn how to work together and problem solve as a group.
