My students come from a low-income area. My district does a great job at supporting us, however, like most districts, there is not a lot of extra money laying around. I want to help my students be the best they can be, and I think that this project will truly help them. I love teaching students new concepts and giving them the opportunity to be successful. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a student be successful at something they once struggled with!
My goal is to keep my students actively engaged in their learning.
My students are the reason I come to work every day! They are funny, sweet, caring and just a great group of kids! I wish I could share them with each and every one of you because they are just that great! You would love to teach too, if you got to spend your day with my awesome students!
1st Grade students sometimes struggle with writing. I want to give my students special writing pencils and notebooks that will help them believe that they can be a writer. By giving them the tools and journals to write, they will begin to believe that they are able to write.
As first grade students learn to read and write, their confidence grows.
Reading and writing work together however a lot of times, students can read better than they can write. I am challenging my students to not only be successful readers in first grade but to be just as successful in writing.
