My Students

My students are funny, smart, and try so hard to learn and please their teacher. My class is diverse and there are many students whose first language is not English. Having hands-on tools available to them is crucial to the success of their learning. They get so excited when I tell them, "We will be learning something new today."

Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most important weapon which you can use to change the world." I hope that through the education my students receive, this is something they will take away at the end of the year.

My students especially love it when I bring out the hands-on learning tools available in our classroom. It is so fun to watch their minds grow and expand as they are manipulating objects that help to solidify the difficult concepts taught in first grade. In addition to teaching my students content from the core, I am trying to teach them that education is powerful, that it will get them anywhere they want to go, and that it will help them to change the world.

My Project

Each year I try to do something different with my students, I try to focus on something I have never taught well or something that is incredibly popular among my students. This year the topic has been STEM. We have been lucky enough to have our Technology Specialist in several times teaching us some wonderful ways we can use technology in our classroom. Two of the most popular activities have been stop motion animation and robots. We are requesting two web cameras to use so we can create stop motion animation videos using our Chromebooks. We are also requesting two Ozobot Robots so we can practice coding at our new STEM table.

I am hoping to acquire some materials for students who have a difficult time staying focused while doing seat work, items such as the Sensory Chew Necklaces/Pencil Toppers requested in this project will be useful to students who may have ADHD.

In addition to the sensory chew necklaces we are hoping to get some fidget toys to use for students who are using our "calm down corner". Fidget toys such as the ones in the kit being requested are useful for students who not only have ADHD, but to students who need to focus on something calming while they take a break.

Finally, we are requesting materials for our treasure box. Sadly it is close to being empty. Students in my class love slap bracelets, silly wind up toys, unicorn rings and bracelets and of course finger lights. All of these items will be used to replenish our treasure box so that when students go above and beyond and have earned a prize there is something fun for them to choose.
