My Students

My class is kindergarten. My students are coming from Pre-K class and they need hands-on activities to keep their minds actively engaged. Everyday we rotate through Reading and Math centers and they need effective materials and fun activities to help them to get their goals for the next grade. My students come from a low-income community and our school has a high migrant population and all of our students receive free lunch. The majority of incoming students in my class are stronger with Spanish, and need a bit more practice in English. I want to help my students providing the best possible learning experience for them here at school. I would love for all my students to be able to read in English and learn math with more confidence. They come excited and ready to learn everyday. And I always tell them the sky is the limit. So let's keep looking forward and striving for our goals.

My Project

Why do I call the project the American dream? Because most of the students in my kindergarten class do not speak English, their families are immigrants and English is their second language. So developing reading and math skills is a challenge without the adequate material to support them in the acquisition of the new language. The resources like Touch & Read Phonics Match - Complete Set, First Little Readers - Level A, Solve It! Addition Magnetic Boards and all of the others that I'm requesting are a big support to reach our goals for reading and math. In Kindergarten, reading and math skills development are important and the foundation for the success in all the next levels. My students are young children and need resources that motivate them to learn and develop their skills.
