My Students

We are first grade teachers in an ICT classroom with 26 students. Our class is a combination of special education students, ENL students, and general education students.

Our students with disabilities range from speech and language impaired, Autistic, ADHD and learning disabled.

Our students are eager to learn and love a challenge.

They love being read to as well as listening to audio books on the radio and promethean board. Our students have an eagerness to learn and love learning about new things.

My Project

This listening center will allow a small group of students to listen to age appropriate books while reading along. The listening center will improve oral language as well as make reading exciting and enjoyable.

Our students engage in literacy learning centers every day.

This project will fund a CD player and headphones in our classroom listening center. Our students exhibit a large range of reading levels from below grade level to far above grade level.

This listening center will benefit all our student's​ needs. Donations to our project will make a difference in our students lives by giving them a foundation of reading skills and oral language.
