Our favorite chant is, "In our class, we try and try again!"
My students come from a high poverty school district where one hundred percent of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.
The challenges that face them at home are almost insurmountable.
Curious, excited and willing to work hard, my students love coming to school! They thrive in a creative environment where they help set their learning goals and are provided with multiple ways to learn and solve problems. Hard work is rewarded and relationships are built and nourished. My hope is to instill in each student a lifelong love of learning!
My project begins with a request for jump ropes and a hopscotch rug. I want to foster a love of physical activity through a series of projects mentioned, to get my students up and moving while they learn. I will use the jump ropes to connect literacy and movement, helping them rhyme and reinforcing phonic skills. I will use the hopscotch rug during transition since that will require students to line up, to teach cooperation and large motor movement. Your donation will help me build social skills, cooperation and teamwork, and problem solving skills.
Together, we can fight childhood obesity and foster a love of movement in my students.
