My Students

My class is full of students who are excited to be at school each day to see what we will learn. Our favorite time is pulling out a keyboard and singing songs together that help us to learn our letter sounds, math facts, and about the world around us.

Our school qualifies for Title I help due to the socioeconomic status of many of our students.

The diversity that exists in our school comes from the reservation which borders our district and the Hispanic population that helps our farming community. We love to use this diversity to help us learn about the world around us. We love to celebrate the Native American culture along with many Hispanic holidays.

My Project

"Variety is the spice of life." That applies to writing as well. In first grade, we are developing our small motor skills and spend a lot of time with some sort of writing utensils in our little hands. The crayons, color pencils, markers, paints, and pencils add variety to what can feel mundane to growing minds.

In my Title One school, many students come to school with no basic school supplies.

I need to be able to provide all of my students with the proper supplies to learn and grow. This starts with the ability to practice writing and creating.

And what good would all of these great writing tools do us without the ability to keep them sharp and ready to go? The two X-Acto pencil sharpeners will give our class a reliable way to keep on learning.
