My Students

We are a Title I school, where most of our students receive free breakfast and free lunch. Some of our students and parents don't speak English and have trouble helping with homework. Some students' English vocabulary is limited. Most of the English they learn comes from school.

Nothing stops my students.

I have wonderful, loving, energetic, and creative students! They are excited and ready to learn. They are first graders, so they love to talk and move around. They need a lot of different hands-on and creative ways to learn.

They have very positive attitudes and believe they can do anything. They are smart and extremely creative but at different levels. I have to differentiate their lessons and give them a lot of hands-on experiences to help them be successful. This will give them a hand to pull them back on track and not lose their confidence and to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

This project is to get all the extra supplies needed to get all of our students' journals, supplies and take-home reading RED folder home labeled and ready. We are also starting a new reading adoption and need to prepare their new center activities. We need to print, laminate, cut and organize all new sets of centers to go with the new books. Our students have a journal for each subject where they keep notes to refer to when needed. Those journals need to all be labeled. Each of our students gets a binder plastic envelope where they keep their on level books and sight words to practice every day. With your help, our students can have everything ready and organized to have a successful school year!
