My Students

I teach a class of second graders who all speak Spanish as a first language. All of our students receive free lunch due to the high poverty in the area we serve. Many of my students come from families who have immigrated from Mexico to give them the opportunity to learn in our school. Some have parents who work incredibly long hours to make enough money to send their child to school with a backpack and a pencil.

No matter what stress my students overcome at home, they all come to school with smiles on their faces.

They are eager to learn and hungry for new experiences. They are grateful for classroom resources like crayons and books, because they may not have those at home.

My Project

My English Language students are eager to use their language skills, but our curriculum does not always provide them with the appropriate scaffolds to do this. While the content in our curriculum books is appropriate, my students need more vocabulary support to help them engage. Using the ink and cardstock paper I requested, I intend to supplement our curriculum to support my students.

Color-printed photos are the best way for me to convey meaning and support vocabulary acquisition.

This is why I have requested color in to enable me to print, and cardstock for high quality prints. Students are more confident and use higher-level vocabulary when they have photos with vocabulary words to reference. They can more easily make connections to content in their first language as well, making the content we learn in their second language more meaningful to them. Coloring our walls with color photos to convey vocabulary is an essential strategy to maintain rigor in our classroom.
