My Students

The students at our school represent a wide array of cultures and backgrounds. The school is situated in a major city and classified as a Title I school, meaning over 75% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. Around twenty percent of the students in our district are from military families. The majority of our students are low income and high risk. However, what they lack in income they make up for in heart and spirit. This adversity also makes them the strongest people I know.

I am entirely convinced that our English Language Arts & Reading (ELAR) students will change the world.

I have seen more brilliant ideas come from my students here than I have ever seen in my years of teaching. Designs I wished already existed and I could already use. Their ingenuity makes me try harder as a teacher and to keep doing everything in my power to help them see their ideas come alive.

My Project

This project will be used to boost language development for all students. The students will utilize the English Language Learner games and activity cards to work with partners and groups to further their language skills.

The kids struggle these days with language expression both orally and written due to overload in technology.

Students will master the basics of written and spoken English—with 8 different excitement-filled games! Each game targets a specific skill in grammar, vocabulary or usage and features a super-simple format that students can easily pick up and play in pairs or small groups, from a memory matching game with idioms and their meanings to a game of “Go Fish” with singular and plural nouns.
