The majority of the population my school serves is raised in generational poverty. Many of them come from large, single parent families. These students have little exposure to academics. Out of 10 students, maybe 2 has books available to read at home. Many young children can only sing the ABC song from memory, however, are unable to identify individual letters and their sounds.
I want to expose them to fun learning.
My students are developmentally delayed in some areas.
I teach the intensive students that are scoring the lowest in our school, and they usually need a variety of presentations with oral being the least. Every student deserves to find interest in learning.
Help me help my students learn the language and build on their bilingual skills. Being bilingual is a major benefit to one’s career and opportunities.
It must be hard coming to school and not being able to talk to a friend in your home language or to know the answer in Spanish or Creole and not English.
The ELL Language Activities and Science Viewers will allow them to learn with the needed support of both visual pictures and print language. I want to teach all my students to love learning. These materials will help them feel successful and build comprehension.
