My Students

Our first grade students are 5-6 year-olds, coming from diverse families, some of whom do not speak English, are from a neighborhood that is often transient, and high need.

They are enthusiastic, but often have had limited exposure to nature or the greater outdoors, living in project housing or apartments, often crowded.

Giving them authentic experience and a chance to develop social-emotional skills is a priority in our building, providing creative play and a solid Common Core standard foundation in learning.

My Project

Dry erase markers are a consumable item, and we always need to replenish our supply. Students are thrilled to use dry erase, and we always seem to grow more efficiently when we can correct our mistakes so easily.

The seat sacks will give us an easy way to store our independent reading materials, including our Scholastic News for free time reading opportunities.

Students can access their materials easily, without disturbing their classmates. Building knowledge of the world brings perspective and enthusiasm to these urban children, who rarely travel outside the Bronx. Independent reading choice encourages confidence with early readers. Empowerment leads to social emotional health and positive feelings about learning.
