My Students

I teach a classroom of six and seven-year-olds in a Title I school that is ninety-four percent free or reduced price lunch. My students and their families live below the poverty level; however, they strive to do their best. Most of my students are struggling emergent readers who don't get to experience a lot of things that other students their age across the country get to experience. I hope to bring as many experiences as possible to my students.

Our classroom is a family that loves and respects each other.

Peer to peer tutoring is accepted and enjoyed. My students love learning from other students in the class. They appreciate help and feel loved when they get that special peer to peer help!

My Project

For the past seven years, I have taught first grade and all content areas. I have also worked as a mentor to other teachers. I have three children of my own that are in middle and high school. What I have learned from my years in education and from raising my own personal children is that it does not matter the grade level or content areas you teach, character education is a must in every classroom and household; specifically the teaching of tolerance.

This year I would like to challenge my first grade students to model for the rest of the school what it means to show tolerance by having them create a bulletin board with examples of tolerance to be displayed for all of the students to see.

In order to create and maintain a bulletin board all year, my students will need materials like poster boards, craft paper, border, pocket chart, sentence strips, and punch-out letters.

I am also asking students to create booklets illustrating and defining the different character traits that will be taught and displayed throughout the school year. To make these booklets, students will also need additional access to items such as a stapler and hole puncher. Students with gross and fine motor deficits will benefit from being able to use the electric stapler and hole puncher independently.
