English Language Development in Kinder!

My students need resources that will help them learn to speak and understand English.

My Students

I teach Kindergarten to 24 of the sweetest, most loving, caring, and smart 5 year old kids. They love coming to school to learn, to be part of something special and I strive each day to make each day the best ever.

Our school is 99% Latino and our entire school qualifies for free lunch.

Many students live in multi-generational homes and their parents work 2-3 jobs just to make ends meet. I do my best to make my classroom a positive and nurturing environment for them everyday, however, our families need more resources to help their children at home.

My Project

I teach Kindergarten to 24 English learning students. My students come to school with little to no language and it is my job to make sure they understand what I am teaching them. The resources that I am requesting will give them a deeper understanding of the English Language.

Have you ever wanted to learn another language?

My students come to Kindergarten usually not fluent in English or their home language. They want to learn! The tubs with manipulatives like the Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tub, the games like Building Language 3-D Lotto, the books (Learning to Get Along Bilingual Book Set) and the games will help them not only learn the English language, but to add meaning to what they are learning. Kindergarten students need realia to make sense of what they see and hear. These resources will help me to teach them English and have fun while they learn.
