My Students

I have a class of 23 wonderfully bright first graders that I miss so much! Before this pandemic, they were enthusiastic learners that enjoyed coming to school every day. Now that we are inside, learning from home, and keeping our social distance, some of my students have access to technology that enables me to continue teaching them online, while others don't have access and are given printed packets of work for learning. I would like to be able to give all of my students the same learning materials. Even if they don't all have access to this new way of learning, they'll all have access to the same materials for learning!

My Project

These items will help my students with the materials they need and would have normally had if they were still in the classroom at school. Now that they are learning digitally, they need these materials more than ever. They will use the writing prompt journals, pencils, crayons, and sharpeners for daily writing assignments as well as other assignments that would require writing. They will use the write and wipe lapboards for working with me in my online groups. All of these materials will be given to them in the cloth bags that they can also decorate just for fun!
