My Students

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a 2-year Kindergarten program. My students are the youngest on campus, as their fifth birthdays fall between September 2 and December 2. They may be young, but they are the most eager and enthusiastic learners.

My students are culturally and linguistically diverse, yet they and their families value learning to read, write, and speak in Spanish.

Our school model is 90/10, meaning that instruction in Transitional Kindergarten is in Spanish for 90% of the day and English for 10% of the day. Some students are maintaining their Spanish language, and some are learning it as a second or third language.

My Project

Technology plays an important part in today's world, especially in education. Not only does it reinforce material taught in the classroom, but it will also increase student engagement. My Transitional Kindergarten students will be using the Macbook Air during literacy and math centers to access software and activities that will support them as they learn Spanish as a second language. The MacBook will also be used to make video recordings of my students to show their progress in learning a new language. Additionally, I will be able to create slideshows with detailed pictures to help increase their Spanish vocabulary and comprehension.
