My Students

My students come excited to learn in two languages, as part of our Spanish Immersion Program that was adopted ten years ago to meet the need of our cultural and linguistic diversity in our district. Six years ago, parents got organized and successfully implemented uniforms at our school. This has helped our students to stay focused on learning and it has provided a positive learning environment for each student.

I am enriched and blessed by my students' diverse cultural, linguistic, and economic background.

More than 85% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my kindergarteners students get the amazing and unique opportunity to start learning in English and Spanish from K to 12. Close to 25% of my students' first language is English, and 50% of my students' first language is Spanish, and 25% speak another language. They share the journey to be able to graduate from high school bicultural, bilingual, and bi-literate; it all begins in my kindergarten classroom.

My Project

Learning in my kindergarten classroom best happens when instruction is differentiated to best meet the need of my diverse students. Something I meet with them on the carpet or at their tables when working in small group of students. I also often use sticky notes or a white board to support their learning.

This kidney table will where I will meet with small group of students or individual students during writer, readers workshop and math.

The top surface will work as a whiteboard as an additional tool for my students. During writing, they can practice high frequency words, sound out words and practice leaving spaces between the words in a sentence. In reading, students will do guided reading where they read the same book with my support. During math, students can practice writing numbers, shapes, showing their thinking using different strategies and much more. The kidney table will also provide a learning space in the classroom where my teacher assistant can work with small group of students in all subject areas, to finish work, pre-teach skills, challenge students, and or for additional support.

All of my kindergartener will benefit tremendously from having this table in our classroom. As a teacher, it will allow me to better differentiate my lessons and meet with my students on a regular basis and my teacher assistant will be able to provide additional support as well as needed throughout the day.
