My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are so eager which makes me so eager.

I ask them, "Who is the best second grade class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and that they can do anything.

I teach at a Title I school in Memphis, Tennessee where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn. Many of them have a bright future ahead of them.

My Project

Developing good engagement early in learning is a key ingredient for success in school and in life. I am requesting materials that will assist my student with keeping our classroom engaged and inviting.

These materials will help my students to continue to be engaged while learning.

The materials will help plan rigorous and engaging lessons for my students. These materials will help build my literacy centers while helping students learn to read. The magnetic letters will help my students build word fluency. Research states that children engaged in the learning practices is the key to students success.

The best way to guarantee children will continue to develop success in school is to be consistent with them from day to day.
