My Students

Our 1st graders are in an urban district and many in high poverty. They don't all get a lot of support at home and many come to 1st grade below grade level in Reading and Math.

It is my job as an educator to keep them motivated and having fun while learning everyday while they are with me.

Our students come from very diverse backgrounds in middle to low income homes. We are a "community learning center" and invite families to participate as much as possible.

My Project

This Rise and Shine Binder will help my students wake up in the morning with a quick review of Math and Language Arts and Reading Skills. It is a binder system that each student has and can use on their own each morning.

It is a differentiated system that can be individualized for each students needs.

The students use a dry erase marker to mark their answers on each page they complete for easy erase and easy teacher check. It uses page protectors for easy switch of pages for the students to review Math and Language.

The students can work independently or with a partner for easy checking or help when needed.
