My Students

My young scholars are very special and sweet to me. They are curious about everything and have a thirst for knowledge. My classroom consists of ELD (English Language Development) and EO (English Only) speakers. I have a mixture of Latino and African-American students. Most of my students attend a school where the majority of children come from low-economic backgrounds. These young students enter my classroom with smiles and ready to engage in fun-filled lessons and activities on a daily basis.

My Project

These basic supplies will make a difference in my students' learning because they are essential to build foundational skills. Students need visuals to understand new skills and also time to strengthen their fine motor skills. I need the poster board to demonstrate how to properly draw and write a basic story. The folders are needed to practice and learn the uppercase and lowercase letters. After practicing the alphabet and numbers, students use dry erase markers to practice how to properly write the alphabet and numbers. And lastly, the permanent markers are needed to write student names on nameplates and folders.
