My Students

My students are a well-rounded group of second graders that attend our school nestled in a quiet, residential neighborhood within a major metropolitan California city. Approximately half of our school's student population participate in the free or reduced-price lunch program. Many students return home after school to apartments and shared, multi-generation households where often both parents work two jobs to provide for their children. Our classroom has been structured to be a safe, comfortable and accepting place for ALL students to focus on their academic and creative success.

My Project

My students are required to receive 30 minutes of English language instruction each day. However, our school does not have a structured curriculum to support this. So, my students receive a variety of supplemental materials to help them reach their English language goals. These Can Do! reading games will allow my students to have fun while they practice skill building exercises that focus on reading strategies, phonemic awareness, and vowel sounds. Additionally, the English Language Learner Library will offer the students opportunities to master the basics of spoken and written English conventions through 8 different sets of games. They'll be able to practice specific skills in grammar, vocabulary, and usage.
