My students need Magna-Tiles so they can be creative with while working on their language skills. They also need multicultural people English Language Development through conversation.
My students are brand new to school. They're bursting with excitement yet grappling with leaving their families for the first time. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want my classroom to be warm and welcoming.
Our school is an urban elementary school.
About 77% of our students are English Language learners and 94% are labeled "economically disadvantaged" according to the 2015-2016 Accountability Report Card. Many of the students coming to our school are immigrants.
My Kindergarteners are creative, spontaneous, up for anything, and very eager to learn! They just need the opportunity, support, and resources.
90% of my students are English Language Learners and one of our big standards is grammatically appropriate English sentences use in conversations. I'm looking to provide creative opportunities for my students to practice their English skills while working together to create with the Magna-Tiles. I feel like there is an abundant amount of rich conversation to be had over constructing and working together with Magna-Tiles. The multicultural people in my cart will provide props for meaningful conversations and building positivity around community helpers. The people will foster back and forth conversations and academic discussions about the role of community helpers in their city.
