My Students

My students are fun, creative children who are eager to learn! They come to school every day and spread their enthusiasm to learn throughout our room. They enjoy reading books, especially when they are able to do this themselves. They are creative writers and great at telling stories. They love to play and socialize with their peers.

Many of my students have come from different countries and are English language learners.

They are eager to receive an education, as are their parents. They value school and family.

My Project

I am asking for velcro strips to help my students with matching. There are many activities where my students have to find matching sounds, letters, and rhyming words. These strips will help my kids group them accordingly without losing pieces. I also asked for bins to help my students stay organized in their areas. I have included a 4 tier organizer to use for my listening area.

This will help students find the book and response sheets they will use when listening to a story.

Finally, I wanted to have the students use the dry ease bags for their printing practice.

Organization is a key to success. Please help us get organized for our learning areas! We are ready to learn and eager to use any new materials to help us become successful!
