My Students

The school's neighborhood is diverse linguistically, culturally and socioeconomically. Some of the languages these students speak at home are Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Vietnamese, and Cape Verde Creole. Our school is a large K-8 school in the district.

In terms of English language development (ELD), students are beginners or intermediate and receive ESL services from me for support of their academic English in the domains of reading, listening, speaking, and writing.

I also provide special education services for students. Students in my classroom are English learners (ELs).

My Project

Currently, my classroom does not have a color printer. This color printer and ink will make a positive impact on student learning. When learning materials are printed in color ink, they are more realistic and easier for my English Learners to relate to and understand as they learn English as a Second Language. For example, when printing pictures to help build background knowledge, a color printer and ink will create pictures that are more engaging and interesting to look at for students.

The color printer will allow my students to print written research reports on the topic of their choice and print a picture that accurately shows what they researched.

When they present their topic to their peers they will have a picture that is printed in color.
