My Students

My first grade students are enthusiastic and eager to learn. They spend their day engaged in hands-on learning experiences. My students are given opportunities to develop their social skills as well as their academic skills.

As a classroom, they work together to learn and work!

My students are a diverse group of learners who work hard, help one another, make mistakes and encourage everyone to try their best. Now more than ever it is important to stay active, create and play.

At school we learn through play, music, partnerships, groups, literature, dance and hands-on experiences. We have fun while learning!

My Project

My students are blossoming first graders. They practice reading, listening, and speaking skills throughout the day.They also have movement breaks in order to keep them engaged.

We begin the day with our morning meeting: we greet one another, share personal experiences from the day before and have a speaking activity.

During our morning meeting, we always speak aloud to practice our English language development.

When we work with our partners in group work, they present their findings to the entire classroom. Some students speak in very soft voices, so it is difficult to hear them. Providing them with the portable speaker will allow us to use a microphone, in order to be be heard when presenting. We will also be able to use the speaker in the yard or the auditorium while we dance to music.
