ESL Kindergarten Welcomes ELMO!

My students need an ELMO to have a front row seat to see and be part of each lesson.

My Students

I work in a very poor neighborhood in the Bronx, NY. Must of my students are English Language Learners. Currently I have 25 kindergarten students who are always trying to sit in the front row to see what is going on. An ELMO would allow ALL of my students to have a front row seat to see and be part of each lesson.

Despite their language barrier, the lack of school supplies/resources, and the lack of technology in my classroom, my diverse young students are so excited to learn and grow.

My priority as a Second Language Educator is to give each student every opportunity to grow beyond everyone's expectations. Having an ELMO in the classroom to work with will help us move towards that goal.

My Project

My English Language Learner students will benefit from having access to an ELMO document camera. The ELMO will definitely allow ALL of them to see classwork, examples and teacher modeling for different activities. The ELMO document camera will project anything we are working on onto a large screen for all to see. Modeling each step will help my students practice the correct way of doing things. Whether it is introducing a new math concept, phonics, letter formation, rhyming words, sight words, or conducting a science experiment, the students will all have the opportunity to see and to engage in each activity.

The ELMO document camera will enhance my English Language Learners' listening and speaking skills by sharing with their peers activities they are working on.

Thank you for considering our grant.
