My Students

I teach students who are most deserving of resources that can engage and support them as they learn the language and academic skills they need.

My students are amazing first grade ELLs (English Language Learners), so not only do they speak one language, they speak two (or more)!

Some of them are also new to the country, and every single day they come to school with their determination and readiness to learn. Having these resources (which they very much need) can help them on their academic journeys!

I send all of my gratitude for anything you can donate to get these much needed resources into the hands of our students. Thank YOU!

My Project

The importance of listening to a book read aloud is enormous!

Students can cultivate and strengthen a love of reading, they can improve their decoding and reading comprehension, as well as increase their exposure to vocabulary!

All of these things are crucial for all children, and even more so for ELLs (English Language Learners).

My goal is to create a listening library for my students. This would include a CD player as well as headphones for students to listen to CDs or mp3s of books read aloud. This would also include the accompanying picture book for students to follow along as they listen.

Thank you for taking the time to view this page, and even more thanks if you are able to donate or share this link! I am immensely grateful for help in getting resources like this into the hands of our multilingual students.

With gratitude,

Ms. McFaul
