My Students

Our school is a wonderful environment for the students to learn. I have 23 little first graders who are ready for their day each day. I always have great parent help and love my class. We spend our days reading, writing, and learning about our world around us. My classroom is full of life. Each day I try to inspire my students with the joy of learning. My classroom is engaging, fun and the students are always full of excitement to see what each day brings.

My students need phonics/sight word games to help them with their phonics and spelling skills.

They also need some writing stations and white boards so that they can get more hands on practice. The materials I am hoping to get will help my students with their phonics skills and writing. These games will keep them engaged and make reading and writing fun to do.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." I know exactly where everything will go and how it will be used. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! The white boards will be used daily in math, reading and writing. They will be used daily in stations and in small groups. We are learning all about sight words! How to read them write them and spell them. These materials will help my students have fun with learning and will keep them very engaged. The donations to this project will help to improve my students understanding with reading, writing and spelling.
