Ms. Powell from Tulsa OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Pre-K is such a fun and exciting grade to teach! My students come to me for their first experience with school and often their first time away from their families. My students are primarily English Language Learners and often come to school knowing very little English.

By the time they leave Pre-K, they are speaking in complete sentences and expressing themselves in brand new ways.

My goal is to provide my students with as many opportunities as possible to build their language skills.

My Project

Pre-K students coming to school for the first time are like sponges soaking up all they hear and see. The Family Engagement packs that this project will fund will be used to reinforce the math and literacy skills we are learning in class. These packs are perfect for my student population of English Language Learners because the resources all have direction cards in English and Spanish.

Engaging families in the learning process will help my students understand the importance of their education.

The best way to understand a concept is to explain it to someone else. While my students are working on the math or literacy packs with their families, they will be imparting their newly acquired knowledge to parents and siblings. These Family Engagement packs will reinforce Pre-K math and literacy standards as well as building my students' bilingual vocabularies by explaining concepts in English and Spanish.
