My Students

Welcome to our classroom! We're a diverse bunch, but what's evident is that we are a community. We are a neighborhood school with about 80% of students walking to or being dropped off at school by a guardian. We are a high poverty school, but my students are motivated to learn and want be engaged in the classroom.

Being an inclusive school, our classroom is full of students with diverse abilities, integrating both general and special education in one room.

These first graders have differing skills, but one thing they have in common is a love for learning.

My first graders are energetic and enthusiastic! They love to sing and get up and move. Unfortunately, many of them are missing basic academic skills in the areas of literacy, math, and writing. This year we are focusing on closing the achievement gap and creating a classroom full of confident, successful students.

My Project

Our class is in need of basic supplies to support our learning. With district budget cuts and low-income households, it is hard to supply a classroom with all the small, but necessary items.

These supplies would help support instruction as well as routines and procedures that we have in place.

We use dry erase markers daily during math instruction. With 27 students, we go through the markers quickly. This supply would give us enough markers for the year. The story picture paper would be used during writing instruction. The larger lines and space for a picture would allow the students to comfortably write and add a picture to their writing piece. The screen cleaning spray would be used to keep our iPad screens clean. The students use these daily in reading and math to support their learning. The clothespins and hook and loop adhesive dots would be used over multiple years. We use the hook and loop adhesive dots to adhere each student's picture to a chart where students can express how they are feeling each day. The clothespins are used to track student data in different reading skills, with the pins moving up and down on a chart to show proficiency.

Thank you for considering our project!
