My Students

My students are so energetic and full of excitement when they enter my classroom each day. My classroom is diverse and has such a wonderful mix of learning abilities. I strive to provide my students with a classroom that is engaging, safe, and challenging.

I teach my students to see our classroom as a family; where we learn and make mistakes together.

Most of our school qualifies for free or reduced rate lunch and the community at our school is so warm and inviting. My goal is for my students to become productive and respectful citizens that develop a love for learning.

My Project

My students have been working with literacy centers to continue their growth in reading, fluency, and comprehension. I have a great group of students who work really hard and I am excited to continue seeing them grow. We have four different centers that they rotate through; these stations help students become better writers and better readers.

I want to make sure my students have a comfortable class environment and some necessities needed for stations.

I am requesting headphones so students can listen to stories read to them from the computer. Not all my students have the luxury of bringing in headphones to use; having headphones will increase their focus, therefore, increasing their ability to comprehend, increase vocabulary, and fluency.

First grade is a major year in our students' lives, this is the year they get to put their foundations to use in writing and reading. In order to become better at both writing and reading, they will need magnetic letters (used by the students to make words and/or sentences), comfy chairs for them to use while reading, and an organizer for papers needed for some of the centers.
