My Students

I teach a dual language immersion program for kindergarteners between 5-6 years old. My class is a very diverse class with students from different cultural backgrounds. My kids are inquisitive, brilliant and energetic. They are eager to learn and full of curiosity. They love to work in centers. They love reading books and learning with their peers.

They are immersed in two languages every day.

Although most of my students are new to Mandarin, they are eager to learn. They can greet each other and sing a few songs in Mandarin now. They love hands-on activities. They love science. They come to school with a positive attitude and enjoy learning and helping each other.

My Project

This tablet will allow my students to access literacy apps, such as "Starfall" and "youHanZi." In the listening center, my students will be able to listen to Chinese stories and learn how to write simple Chinese characters. They will be able to learn the origin of the mid-autumn festival, Chinese New Year etc. and develop cultural awareness. With the implement of the listening center, they will be able to improve their Mandarin language proficiency from novice low to novice mid and even novice high. The tablet will also provide my students with an opportunity to develop language skills in a fun and engaging way.

The flexible seats will create a cozy and comfortable environment for my students.

In the reading center, the flexible seating also helps make learning fun. It allows my students to easily pair up and conduct the shared reading with their peers.
