My Students

As a bilingual teacher in a low-income school, my students face challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, they come to school each day excited and ready to learn. I have 36 awesome 4th graders, they have their own unique learning styles. As they attend to class each day, they work extremely hard to overcome challenges and also to become very successful learners.

My awesome bilingual students require different teaching modalities in order to better access their education.

My students are happy, hard-working and always do their best work. They will gain word knowledge and comprehension knowledge with their new reading work stations. These materials will help me create differentiated stations and provide them with a solid language arts foundation for 4th grade and beyond!

My Project

Literacy stations allow for student choice, have explicit and ongoing routines. They promote student collaboration, facilitate student motivation, and provide targeted practice for my students.

We will use dry erase circles to work during small groups.

My students will love using them to practice writing sight words or even taking notes during my small group reading lesson. I will use the white cardstock paper to create and print reading and writing task cards, the book rings will help my students keep the task cards together and the laminating sheets to seal and protect our engaging task cards . We would love to have color paper to bring color to my lessons and activities. Studies have shown that students learn more when the lesson is colorful and engaging. My classroom is full of bright young minds who are eager to learn.
