My students need a lot of love, care, and support from teachers. Our school is in a poverty-stricken area, where many students do not have the necessary supplies or tools they need to succeed. Building a warm, safe, inviting classroom community and environment is so important for my students.
My students are kind, caring, and ready to learn.
They are continuing to learn how to best communicate with friends and prevent bullying in our classroom. Classroom community is still something we are continuing to build throughout the year, not just in our class, but school-wide. We also strive to provide differentiated, culturally-responsive instruction and need more resources to do that.
I hope to receive support from DonorsChoose.org in order to help my students get necessary supplies, create a sense of community, safety, and comfort in my classroom, as well as help my students create long-lasting memories to help them connect positively to school. I appreciate your support in helping my students get what they need to learn and grow.
I am being moved to first grade this year, and it is my first time teaching this grade level. To help start the year, I would love to have a writing center for my students to enjoy! The timers would help give a visual for center rotations for this young group, and the comprehension can do game and writing prompts will help give students fun and engaging activities to complete during their writing center rotation. Not only will they have fun, but these games and activities will help get them ready for second and third grade writing! Please consider donating to give us a writing center!
