Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are very energetic and love learning! They are excited to come to school each day and spend time with their friends. They always work hard and push each other to do their very best.
My classroom is full of students from diverse backgrounds, who celebrate their differences.
As a class, we love learning together in fun and engaging ways. We see ourselves as a first grade family and feel so lucky to spend a year together learning. My students and I are committed to being life long learners.
Help me make phonics fun by giving my students a class word work mascot. Lucy Calkins came out with a new word study program that my district has supplied for us. In the curriculum she uses an adorable lion to introduce new units. The stuffed lion will help make students excited and engaged during learning.
Rasheed the lion will help my first grade team mix play and imagination into learning.
Our young students will go wild seeing all the different disguises that Rasheed magically shows up in. He will wear a detective costume during our word detectives unit, a construction costume with a tool kit during our word builders unit, and at the end of the year he will show up ready to graduate in his gown and cap.
