My Students

Hello!

1st Grade!

My new group of students are so excited to start the 1st grade! This will be the beginning of my third year teaching 1st grade.

I will be teaching Math and Science this year for 2 groups of amazing students. My students will be engaging in small group, individual and whole group activities. Students will also be using technology.

Since I am a new teacher, I need supplies and other materials to assist in growing their brains!

My Project

The items chosen are materials needed to help students grow their brains. Students need headphones for their technology. The chart paper and markers will be used for making anchor charts around the room. Staplers, sharpies, and tape are used often and always needed. My students do a lot of projects and we are always running out of supplies. We are at a Title I school so most parents are not able to bring in supplies for their students. With the rolling cart, I would love to carry heavy items back and forth, from school and home or from the classroom to the media with the children's books!
