ESL Reach Them To Teach Them

My students need the Sight-Words Spill & Spell game, 6 Spanish pictionaries, photo vocabulary cards, as well as the All About Today activity center.

My Students

My students are from a high need area of the Bronx. It is a culturally diverse community with ESL from Latin America, Bangladesh, China, and Africa to name a few. Many of my English Language Learners come to me in the 4th grade with NO English and little schooling in their native language.

My students only have a year to catch up and then take state exams.

I don't have the resources that I need to achieve my educational goals for them. I don't have any technology in my space, so that does provide me with a daily challenge as I try and get these students up to the academic level of their peers.

My Project

Donations would be a blessing for these children. I believe that they deserve the same educational opportunities as all the children of our country, the most wonderful in the world. As I have only $45 dollars this year for my allowance to spend on these students, I would be overjoyed to receive materials that can help propel them academically. Resources that would give them the chance at moving on to higher education. My students would benefit from the spill & spell game,Spanish pictionaries, & photo vocabulary cards,sentence learning ctrs. as well as the All About Today Activity Center. This would get us on a great start to building our educational material resources.

My son, who is 9, is fortunate enough to go to a school with abundant resources, such as technology in every room.

It breaks my heart that my students don't have the same opportunity as my son because of a circumstance which is beyond their control. With help from Donors Choose, I hope to help these students reach their academic goals and go on to become responsible, productive members of society.
