Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach at a school with a very heavy English learning population. I am their first resource to help them accumulate to the school systems in the United States. This is a new career path for me and the students I have met so far have been so excited about school and so eager to learn.

Because my students will not have English as their first language, they need additional support and resources.

They will need access to hands on materials in order to help them accumulate so they can be successful!

My Project

I have gotten several students who are brand new to the U.S.A.! I would love to help them become as bilingual as possible while they are here. Being able to speak two languages will be an amazing thing for these students as they become older. I want to broaden their vocabulary skills while still maintaining their native language.

As an ELL teacher, I find it very important for students to never feel like they have to lose their native language but instead keep it and learn a new language as well.

This will only help them in the long run! We need English Language Learner games library.
