My Students

Our students come from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, and a handful of other countries throughout the world. They are all newcomers to the United States and come with humble hearts and a willingness to learn and experience their new school and new culture to the fullest. They come to the United States under circumstances that they do not always control but they all come with a strong desire to learn English and meld into their new community.

Their bilingual and multilingual talents make them especially unique but also present many challenges.

Many students in ESL programs in the United States must work twice as hard to catch up and complete requirements for graduation. I want to make sure that these students have everything that they need to master objectives and feel oriented and prepared for the real world.

My Project

Some of the most engaging and effective ways to learn a second language are by using fun and interesting materials and activities in addition to a good text book.

Rhyming Bingo games are directly related to the development of great reading skills and a solid foundation in phonemic awareness.

I use bingo and other games to reinforce essential reading skills in my students who are all beginning and emerging readers in their second language which is English.

Art materials such as colored pencils, poster board, and scissors are used in my classroom to bring lessons to life. One of the first projects that is done in my Newcomer class is an "interactive notebook." This interactive notebook solidifies letter recognition, phonics practice, and phonemic awareness so that my students can begin reading in English as soon as possible.
