My Students

My second and third grade special education resource classroom is composed of 20 bilingual students. My classroom is in need of additional resources to assist my students needs in coping skills, social emotional development, expressing their emotions, along with academics. Our school district has a diverse population of students and a high number of families who are economically disadvantaged. Our school's population consists of a large number of English language learners and students who receive free or reduced lunch. Please consider supporting my classroom by helping my students have access to a variety of materials that will enhance their learning experience.

My Project

My second and third grade special education learners can benefit from a variety of hands-on, engaging, positive behavior, and comprehensive activities and tools that will continue to enhance their reading, writing, and social-emotional skills.

With these new materials my bilingual students will be able to enhance their reading and comprehension skills from two worlds (English and Spanish).

My students will also make gains towards their comprehension and communication skills. My students have several academic, social, and language goals. With these new materials, all aspects of their goals will be practiced on a daily basis. My students show a great interest in staying active and supported. This project will further support my engaging successful learners.
