My Students

Our ICT (Integrated Co-Taching) class is made up of 32 third graders. All 32 students are ESL students with 3 being non-English speakers. Twelve students have IEPs as well. They are eager, well behaved students who love to be engaged in learning.

Most students in this class are bilingual, speaking either Chinese or Spanish as well as English as their second language.

We want to make our classroom warm and welcoming for our incoming class for the 2018-2019 school year!

My Project

Our classroom is in need of new book bins so that we can stay organized and look great at the same time. Right now our book bins are cracked so we would like some new durable ones for our classroom library. The wicker bins will add a cozy atmosphere to the classroom.

We would also like a comfy chair to reward our Student of the Week with a special treat.

This will go in the reading area with a coffee table and reading tools. Lastly, we would like binders to help us keep reading and writing tools in order. These will be used for small group instruction during the school year.
