My Students

My thirty-nine kindergarteners are in the Extended Foreign Language Spanish program at an elementary school in a low-income area in the heart of Miami, Florida, where ninety-eight percent of the students are Hispanic and more than eighty percent are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.

Despite their economic challenges, these fun-loving 5 and 6-year-olds are at that wonderful stage where they are eager to learn and are inquisitive.

My students are active, hands-on kids who love to learn through experience.

My Project

These educational items will help my students learn through differentiated instruction. The CVC Word Work Center will allow my students to be active and learn at the same time, while I am working with a small group.The students will be able to make words and read words with the CVC Word Work Center. My First Magnetic Story Board will allow my students to actively learn how to build words, build and write complete sentences, instead of just sitting at their desk and completing work sheets. These "games" will help every student learn at their individual level. Also, students will be learn to work in a group setting. These educational games are designed for student interaction. Not only will students learn, but they will build social skills.
