My Students

All of my bright-eyed and resourceful students are English Learners from low to below poverty level income immigrant families. Several have experienced trauma which challenges their academic and socio-emotional development and success. My students learn in their home language, Spanish, while developing English language skills.

My students are resilient and eager to learn even as over 70% of them are performing at far-below grade level, at a 'pre' Pre-K reading skills level!

As a class, few are just starting to read, write and count, while the vast majority are still learning the alphabet, letter-sound correlations and how to write their name.

Critical to accelerating my students' reading and writing skills is being able to offer them interventions using alternative and differentiated instruction using multi-sensory and engaging activities and materials.

My Project

Alphabet skills and phonics are essential building blocks of literacy. Children need alphabet practice to develop reading and writing skills.

Learning happens when students are engaged, having fun, and feeling successful.

Using color-coded letter magnets and letter tiles can make learning both engaging and fun. They lend themselves to many activities and games around letter identification, phonics, word building, word families, and more!

Along with the Letter Recognition Instant Learning Center and individual student magnetic boards and lapboards, the above items can be used for both independent student practice and as part of small group differentiated mini-lessons to offer children a variety of spelling, writing and reading practices.
