My Students

Could you imagine not understanding a single word your teacher is saying to you? That is how the school year starts for many of our English Language Learner students.

I teach in a kindergarten / first grade combination bilingual (English / Spanish)classroom in an urban school district in California.

My classroom is the only bilingual classroom in the entire school, and the only combination classroom in the kindergarten & first grades at our school. My students start school speaking no, or very little, English. They also come from some of the lowest socio-economic level families in our community. Being in a combination classroom with a teacher who has no assistant presents further challenges to their making progress in learning English.

My Project

These materials will get a lot of use in our classroom! These photo cards & photo magnets will be used throughout the day in Language Development class that all students take, as well as during Language Arts time. In the morning I will use them in the Systematic English will also use them in other subject areas such as science and social studies. The engaging visuals that they will provide will greatly improve the students' understanding of the material being taught.

Your help will make it possible for my students to make great progress in learning English.

Your generous assistance will help us to overcome the challenges they bring to school, and the challenges I face teaching in a combination classroom. Thank you for considering my project. I thank you in advance to your kindness.
