Mrs. Wagner (WAGS) from Frankton IN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Color Our Words

Help me give my students some new art supplies including markers and colored pencils. The classroom markers that I do have are over ten years old and all dried out.

My Students

I teach first and second year Spanish students. Learning a language is hard. There are so many different components to master a second language: speaking, listening, writing and reading. One of the most difficult aspects of learning another language is the listening component.

My students do not have many resources available to them at home, as many come from lower-income families.

Many students in our school receive Eagle Packs (bags filled with food items to help them make it through the weekend.) Just because kids have less, does not mean that they learn less. These kids just need a little extra help from outside.

I am looking for some art supplies, and highlighters for my classroom. As a way to incorporate learning, often we do activities that require coloring. Our district is trying to lower student fees, so I have never asked for students to have colored pencils of their own; I just make due with my old/dried-out markers.

For example, we make large picture flashcards when learning new vocabulary. Having a mental picture to tie-in with the new word in extremely helpful. The highlighters will be used to differentiate between the different parts of speech.

My Project

To learn new vocabulary, I like to have the students create picture flashcards. Incorporating a picture helps to add one more dimension to their learning. This gives students a break from the hard grammar concepts. While they are creating and having fun with new words, they don't even realize that they are learning! Kind of like sneaking vegetables into the spaghetti sauce..... Also, I would like to start having my students highlight the different parts of speech in sentences. Making verbs blue, and nouns pink, adjectives yellow, etc. This will not only help them improve their Spanish, but will reinforce their knowledge in English! A total WIN-WIN!
