Keeping the Mind Growing Everyday !

My students need all the following materials and especially the Brother MFC-J5830DW Extra High Yield Ink Cartridge Set color ink for their visuals and vocabulary so they can associate the words and the vocabulary together.

My Students

My students are bright, inspired, and learning their second language, English. They are highly motivated and working so hard and making great strides to become independent thinkers. They love to learn through hands on activity. Their favorite past time is to work in groups on projects whether it be for a holidays or an end of the unit culminating activity.

Each child in my classroom is truly an inspiration for me because they never give up and are always willing to overcome obstacles in their learning.

They truly inspire me to become the teacher I am today. I am so lucky to have them !

However, because we are a classroom of ESL students, we need all the materials we can get to help students become the best learners they can become !

My Project

With these materials, my ESL students will have visuals and guides to help them overcome their struggles with English and be the best students they can be. We will be using laminating sheets to laminate important references the students needs in order to support their learning. The anchor chart hold will help students that need references to reinforce ideas and strategies that are being taught in the classroom. The plastic protectors will display the amazing growth that the students show because of the support we are getting to help them become star students. However, most important of all is the Brother Extra High Yield Ink Cartridge Set, because color in a classroom makes students excited for learning and that is the key to a successful classroom.
