My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds and live in an urban setting where they would benefit highly from the use of more technology in our classroom. Our school services students in grades kindergarten through fifth. Overall, our students are hard-working and high achieving boys and girls who have the support of their families. Many of our students go on to competitive middle schools and charter schools. Our school is comprised of dedicated teachers who have the training to use technology in an effective way.

My Project

One area my students excel in is listening and speaking. Having several different learning types in my room, I know first hand how nerve wracking it is to try to overcome learning a new language and having the confidence to speak to native peers. I'm requesting a new carpet as a way for students to actively engage in listening and speaking. Students will be able to listen to stories or practice listening to conversations to boost their listening and speaking confidence. In my classroom, we practice listening and speaking daily using cooperative learning strategies.

The addition of this new rug would give my students a much needed boost of practice in the areas of listening and speaking.

Students who are confident in their listening and speaking abilities will be ready to face the challenges of higher education and the workplace.
