Tricky Tasks!

My students need language arts and math activities and a complete set of learning centers to enhance their understanding of the Common Core Standards.

My Students

Help us reach mastery! We need more language arts and math activities to in order to master the new Common Core Standards.

Our classroom is full of bright, energetic first graders.

They come from vastly different ethnicities and home lives, which makes every day a new learning experience! We attend a 2nd year charter school in North Florida. Since we are a new school, we lack some of the resources we need.

My Project

The newly adopted Common Core Standards present several challenges to students and teachers alike. We need more resources to help us reach our goal in both Language Arts and Math. We will use the requested center activities daily to enhance our understanding of the new material. I have requested several materials to aid my students during their center time, with a focus on improving their critical thinking skills. These materials include center games and activities, and well as a lesson planning guide so that I can plan rigorous lessons for them.

We are paving the way for a new Educational America.

Many students today are entering college lost and unprepared for what lies ahead. We are all responsible for creating a secure future for every child, and it starts early!
