My Students

I have a very diverse group of twenty-one first graders this year. Our goal for the year is to be ready for second grade.

The pandemic has forced us to move our learning online at home.

This has continued to diversify our classroom. Some students are flourishing, while others are struggling online.

My Project

While several of my students are doing a great job with online learning, a few of my students often struggle online. Some of my student's families share one computer or do not have steady internet access. I have selected a variety of hands on math resources and reading resources to help some of my friends make sure they have the tools they need to keep practicing school concepts at home these last few weeks of distance learning and throughout the summer so they are ready for second grade next fall!
