My Students

The students in my classroom are every diverse from many standpoints including various learning abilities and disabilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and cultures. My students are in a Title 1 school where 68% receive free or reduced lunch. Many of my students along with the students at my school speak English and Spanish, however there are some who only speak Spanish and other various languages.

My students require more hands on learning and materials that meet their various developmental stages, learning styles and learning abilities.

Many of my students are below grade level. They often need extra materials, or supplies to help them participate in school.

My Project

This year my students are learners who are auditory and tactile learners, which requires them to have the proper supplies to help them learn. Having these types of learners impacts how we approach teaching. The headphones for the listening center will help students focus on the story or skill that is being taught. Sand will allow them to practice basic skills while writing the cvc word and decoding with their finger (computation, encoding, decoding, and so much more), while allowing them to have the sensory input that they need. The dice will help them practice the skills during their centers and flex groups by playing games focusing on the skills while having a visual and tactile experience. The dice with the games in our room help our students have fun while learning at the same time.

These supplies will make a difference, since I have seen the impact of similiar supplies on my students.

The confidence of my students will grow, which will help them in the moment and in the long run.
