My Students

This year I have a wide range of students. Most of my students are Native American, some that are eager to learn, others that will need that extra push to succeed. The children seem to work really well together and encourage each other.

I believe that all students can and will learn regardless of ethnicity.

They just need to be nurtured and encouraged to succeed. Some just need to know that they are loved and can achieve their goals as long as they don't quit and never give up.

My Project

My students need these fluorescent light filters to help provide an optimal learning environment. These lighting filters will make the students more alert and energetic throughout the day. Therefore, learning is at its best. These filters will provide all colors of the spectrum in our classroom.

Supplies for alternative learning are key to a successful learning environment.

I will use the write-on dice for the students to practice their sight words and spelling word on. The dry erase markers and erasers will be use to write and erase the words on the dice and our dry-erase table. The clipboards will be used to allow students to have a more flexible work space.
