My Students

My students are from a small town in Palm Beach County and come from a variety of different economic backgrounds where 91% of students are on free and reduced-price lunch. Some students come into class without knowing any English! This has been the story for many of my students this past school year. Although I have students from various backgrounds, my school did receive new students who were displaced because of Hurricane Maria this school year. These students have moved to Florida because of devastation and destruction to their home and school in Puerto Rico. This effect has given these children a new home, school, friends, language, and culture. I have been enjoying supporting my newest students. After giving them time to feel welcome to our school and community, I have found areas where I can help them grow and develop within their overall academics including reading, writing and learning to speak English. I love to watch all the growth and accomplishments of every child, every day. Year after year, my heart only grows bigger for all of my students with each year of teaching. Every child has a special place in my heart.

My Project

My students need a strong visual supports to help them learn the English language alphabet letters and sounds. The students' various learning styles are supported with these materials. The tactile letters allow students to feel how to make the formation of each letter. The magnetic writing board will allow the students free writing of the letters. Puzzles with letter sound support give visual aid to help with meaning of combining sounds to make words. With these resources, it will help build a strong foundation that these English Language Learners need to begin speaking, reading and writing in the English language beginning with the alphabet.
