My Students

My school is a small, rural neighborhood school where I consider the students my family. I have taught first grade for 36 years, most of those in the same classroom. I have many second-generation families of students come through my classroom each year. I live and also go to church in this neighborhood and volunteer at the Second Harvest Food Bank in the summer here. Seventy percent of the students come from an economically disadvantaged home, and many live with one parent or are being raised by grandparents.

My students are bright inquisitive first graders who love to read and learn about the world around them.

I want to provide them with a weekly news magazine that they can share with their families.

My Project

One of my favorite memories as a child in school was when we were given weekly readers on Fridays to take home and share with our family. I could not wait to get home and read it to my little brother. I want to provide that same kind of experience to my students by giving them the weekly news magazine Scholastic News and the monthly Science Magazine Science Spin and Map Skills for them to read together in class and then share with their families.

Students will be reading about relevant first grade topics and current events on first grade reading levels and then will be able to share these papers with their families and have ownership of them.
