My Students

This is my first year teaching, and I want to provide the best materials for my students so they can learn every day. My students are very curious, and they love hands-on activities. About 90% of my students are English Language Learners. My school is located in a low socioeconomic neighborhood. My students are very humble and they are very appreciative, this is one of the reasons why I chose to teach at LES, because I adore these kiddos. They need visuals, hands-on activities, and purposeful material to enhance their learning. They love technology and they are very interested in science.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

What a better way to change the world than by educating children to be the best they can be. Every day, I encourage my students to respect and be kind to one another. I teach them to appreciate the fact that they are in school every day. I know my students will appreciate and love what you helped provide for their success!

My Project

These cool, awesome, educational materials and toys will help motivate my students every day. I have a couple of students who are "early finishers," and my plan is to make STEM bins that they can use after they finish their work. In order to do that I will need LEGO's, double-sided assorted geo boards, magnetic building blocks, and tinker toys. These items are perfect because my students will have a blast using their imagination, but they'll be engaged while learning Mathematics, Science and some engineering. Each of the STEM bins will contain a task card. Each task card will have written instructions so students know what they have to build.

Since the majority of my students are English Language learners, it is essential for them to develop literacy.

Therefore, I need these interactive games like magnetic letters, Rory's Story Cubes, and "Snap It Up!" to help them with phonics and become great writers. My 2nd grade students struggle with spelling. In order to help them with our weekly spelling words I plan on using the magnetic letters in literacy stations. In this station, students will practice spelling using the magnetic words. I also want to use "Snap it Up!" in stations as well, so students can develop phonics and reading skills. I am really excited for my students to play with "Rory's Story Cubes." These cubes will enhance my students imagination and assist them on writing. Students have to write EVERYDAY, so you can imagine that they can run out of ideas of what to write. These story cubes will challenge them because they have to write a brief story about the images/drawings they see in the cubes.
