In my general education kindergarten classroom, I have 21 boys and girls. There is a high percentage of English language learners, whose parents are recent immigrants.
Each day, we work on foundational literacy, science, social studies and math skills.
We have weekly activities, such as computers, art, phys ed and dance, where my students work with other teachers for a complete educational experience.
Many of my students have two working parents, so they stay in our after school program to have a late afternoon meal and get homework help.
I am requesting several hands-on literacy and math centers for my students. These centers will help teach and reinforce math concepts such as addition, counting and one-to-one correspondence. The literacy centers will support learning of writing sentences, and sequencing of story events.
These activities will give my students independence during center time.
I have noticed that my ELL need to work on the skills contained in these centers in order to move on to more independent and higher-level learning. While I directly work with small groups, the other students will be able to complete these activities in a self-paced and non-judgmental setting.
