My Students

I am a first grade teacher at a public school. My students are excited about learning and want to excel in school. I have a large range of learning abilities in my classroom. My students come from diverse backgrounds with a variety of needs. Some have Autism, ADD, or ADHD, but all of the children have the same desire to learn.

My students are sweet.

They are excited and ready to learn, explore, and take on the world. They are excited from the time they get off the bus in the morning to when they leave at night.

All our students receive free breakfast and lunch. We are a Title I school.

My Project

I need markers, crayons, and paper for my students to learn. We are a busy first grade classroom. We use a lot of paper to write and draw on. We use markers everyday and are always running low!!! And paper, who ever has enough of that!!!!

We need basic materials.

These materials always make a difference to a first grader. It is how we learn. Just using the basics. We will create stories and write with our markers in a rainbow of colors. The crayons, people color will look like us. We will illustrate the stories and use the paper to display our stories in the hallway for the whole school to see how smart we are!!!
