My Students

My students are enthusiastic and ready to learn! I have a group of inquisitive busy first graders with a variety of abilities and interests. My students always give their best efforts. They enjoy school to the fullest each and every day.

I hope to be able to provide them with everything they need to have a successful year!

Our school is in an impoverished area of Southern California. While we do the best we can with what we have, once in a while, we need to ask for a little help.

My Project

We will be off to a great start to the year with the help of these colorful tools and supplies! With the printer ink, my students will be able to print out their creations, classwork, books, flashcards and more, which we can proudly display. Being able to print in color gets them excited about learning.

My students are noticeably more engaged with the addition of color.

For this reason, I am also ordering heavy duty colorful plastic folders for writing and homework. The markers are to make wonderful posters and charts in the classroom. The hanging folders will help us keep all that classwork organized. And finally, with highlighters, my students will be able to mark up their printed books to help them recognize spelling patters, find evidence int the text, highlight key vocabulary, and so much more.
