My Students

My classroom consists of 29 students. 14 of them are English Language Learners. I strive to make learning meaningful and appropriate for everyone’s learning level. My students are eager to learn and I want to provide them with tools to succeed. STEM items, morning work tubs, and bilingual books are supplies I would like to incorporate in my classroom to help students connect and engage in learning. The items I wish to have will provide them that amazing learning opportunity.

My Project

The legos, flash cards, Uno game, wood dominoes, and other supplies will give us a great start to the morning that will be able to be used by all students of all levels and languages! Students with limited English speaking ability will be able to play and interact with English speaking students. Through these interactions the non-English speaking students can gain basic vocabulary and feel as they are part of the community. These supplies will also allow us to have a great focused start to our morning. Students will have access to the games/activities to get their brain ready for the day of learning. Thank you for helping us have a great school year!
