My Students

My students love to learn. Their loving families send them to school every day ready to collaborate, make mistakes, have fun, and work hard. Most of the students at our school qualify for the free lunch program, so their families cannot support the school financially.

I want to provide my students with meaningful, hands-on learning.

Since many students are English Language Learners, they must both master academic content and a new language. This means it is critical that every moment of the day supports deep conversations and academic language as well as content standards.

My Project

I am requesting books to enrich our classroom library. These fiction and nonfiction titles will entice my young readers to practice all their reading strategies as they devour new, engaging titles. I have selected a wide variety of books at many reading levels to meet the needs of all my readers.

Cooperative building play develops language, math skills, spatial awareness, and engineering expertise.

I want my students to plan, build, and design together. To support their learning, I am also requesting magnetic building blocks in a variety of shapes and styles. These blocks will inspire new creations, rich conversation, and lots of trial and error. These habits of mind are key for all learning!

Together, these books and blocks will help my students develop the skills and strategies they need to be successful from Kindergarten to college and beyond!
