Mrs. Gomez from Blue Island IL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bilingual Students Eager to Learn!

My students need classroom supplies and essentials in order to be successful in their learning experience which they are limited to due to lack of funding and being low income.

My Students

My incoming students are bilingual with limited resources. They struggle not only with some of the same things other students in a regular classroom do but also with the language barrier. Most of these students come from low incme families who struggle with even buying school supplies. They are great students who are eager to learn but definitely need more resources to be successful.

My bilingual students are smart, kind, and eager to learn!

They are overcoming challenges everyday and deserve to have all resources possible to help them reach their academic goals.

My Project

The materials I am asking for are classroom essentials needed to be able to provide my bilingual students with the best resources in their learning experience. I am looking to create an inviting reading corner within my classroom. I will be using the Flex-Space Big Beanbag seats to create this reading corner for independent reading. Although, we are in great need of other items, these essentials will help me get them to a great start for a successful year.

My students struggle with the same struggles of other students who are in regular classrooms, with the addition of the language barrier.

They need visual resources to help them understand and make connections in math and reading. The wipe boards will make our math lessons easier to understand. My students also need a welcoming environment that will motivate them to overcome their challenges and continue to grow and learn!
