My Students

I have a wonderful, curious, extremely sweet class this year. There are many English language learners who need differentiated instruction to help them learn the language and curriculum. Hands on activities will greatly benefit them and help build the foundation they need in order to succeed this year and in the future.

My students come from very low income families and have a lot of difficulty purchasing even the basic necessities for the classroom, such as pencils, crayons, markers, paper, tissues, etc.

Any donation would greatly enhance my students' learning experience and I can assure you these children will truly appreciate anything they receive.

My Project

My students look forward to Center Time everyday. I love watching them learn and grow while working collaboratively with their classmates. I am always looking for new and exciting activities to implement into Center Time. When I came across these center activities, I thought they would be perfect! These activities will help me create new centers for my class.

I will be better able to differentiate and reach all of my students, especially my struggling learners.

These children don’t all have the opportunity to practice their letters and phonics at home. I try to give them several opportunities throughout the day to practice their letters and phonics skills using the games from this project. By giving them every chance I can to learn and have fun while doing so, I hope to create a solid foundation for them to build upon in the years to come!
