My Students

In our school of 400+ students, 65% of students are low socioeconomic status and 35% of students are learning English as a new language. First grade is a crucial year for students to develop language, reading, and mathematical skill sets that will continue to grow throughout their educational career. My class of 20 first graders is made up of students learning English, students with different learning styles and students who are above grade level.

My goal as an educator is to provide the necessary experiences to help students grow personally as students and citizens.

I would love your help in making my vision a reality!

My Project

In my first grade class, I have many students of varying ability levels. However, my students share a common love of reading and writing. Unfortunately, I do not have the appropriate notebooks for students to respond to what they read in class. The notebooks I have are college ruled and created for older students.

My first grade students need notebooks that are developmentally appropriate so they can share their ideas!

Please help my class to continue to share their ideas through writing and in turn, reading their writing to the class in a classroom tradition called Author's Chair. These notebooks will allow my students to work on fine motor skills while developing writing skills to prepare students for the 21st century educational expectations.
