My students are motivated and eager to learn. They enjoy being read to, and after they have heard books read to them, they can read them on their own. They enjoy literature and discussing books. They have a wonderful knack for connecting personal experiences with the literature they have read. They are learning a new language and developing their vocabulary every day. My end in mind is to develop the love of reading that will take my students on great adventures.
I teach twenty four first grade, second language learners who are living in a low income community in Los Angeles.
Our school is a Title I school with students from preschool to fifth grade. At my school, we strive to instill the idea in our students that they are thinkers, leaders, and change makers. We are the first Leader in Me school in our area and we are very proud to be developing Leaders. As you can see from our picture we are beginning with the end in mind! My students are not just wearing a college t-shirt, but believing that one day they will be college graduates!
My students use word work centers daily to help their reading skills. They benefit from manipulating letters and from picture cards to help them with reading skills. I am asking for two I Can Read Words center.
I am also asking for red vinyl for complete an art project for my students.
We also use reward badge to motivate the students when they reach a learning goal. So I'm asking for badge parts to continue to motivate the students to meet their learning goals. It creates a personal touch for them since they design their own button to wear when they meet their goal.
