My Students

My students are excited first-grade students in a high-needs school district. First grade is the year when learning takes off! Unfortunately, school budgets do not always make it possible for me to provide the materials and experiences to let my students soar.

Help me make this their best year ever!

The supplies, projects, and special trips that can be provided for my children through DonorsChoose.org will make first-grade the best it can be. I thank you in advance for your help.

My Project

My students are budding readers and writers. One of the tools they use to help build their reading and writing vocabulary is called 'Word Work'. In our classroom, we have independent stations where children can manipulate letters to make words.

The alphabet stampers and colorful stamp pads will have my students writing the rainbow!

Students can use the stamps to make vowels and consonants come together to build vocabulary words and spelling words. Imagine how colorful their writing will be!

This is also helpful for students who have difficulty with fine motor control. They can still write neatly using the stampers! This will open up a whole new world for some students.
