Most of my students are from low-income families, mainly African American, and Latinos. We are a Title I and 100% free lunch school. I teach in a Spanish Immersion program in Indianapolis where the students learn using the Spanish language. My school is a Title I school in Indianapolis, Indiana.
My students are exceptional because from a young age they get the opportunity to learn a second language (Spanish) and benefit from a dual immersion language education that helps them to gain better brain capacities.
Being a kindergarten teacher is very rewarding, I have the pleasure to introduce them to school.
I am requesting healthy play food, pots, and pans for our empty food truck. My students love and enjoy playing in the playhouse. Through play, my students will be able to learn about different types of healthy food and develop an awareness of healthy food. I believe that it is important to teach students healthy eating habits and how to choose healthy food at a young age.
These items will not only increase health awareness, but they will also help with vocabulary and oral development in Second Language Learners.
Students will learn about the different types of food groups and the different types of kitchen utensils. These items will also provide students with opportunities to speak in complete sentences which many of my students need.
