My Students

My students are incredible. I have 24 motivated English Language Learners who are eager to learn. My students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds with limited resources available to them. We are a Title I, Performance Improvement School, with one hundred percent of our students on the free lunch program. Many parents work two jobs and are struggling to support their families.

Though their outside environment may not be conducive to learning, my students have an insatiable love of learning.

I know that if we provide them with the right support, resources, and opportunities, they can experience success.

My Project

I use a monetary system in my classroom where students earn play money for coming to school on time, getting homework done, getting good grades on assessments, and even being kind and compassionate. At the end of each month, I open a play store where they buy items they like. The small flashlights will be one of the prizes they can purchase.

Students learn how to count, trade up, and subtract money on a daily basis.

They purchase small toys and the flashlights are one of their favorites. Delayed gratification is hard for a young student but they know how to save and hopefully will carry this on in their adulthood.

The envelopes will be used to store their literacy flashcards away in their desks as well as our math games that use small cards. We will store them in a basket so it is easily accessible.

The blue bins are the extra bins that 5 of my students did not get. It came in sets of 20 so not everyone could get one. Now my 5 students will be able to store all their belongs in their desk neatly!
