My Students

My students are a diverse group of learners. They come from all parts of the world, as we are an ESL school. They are so excited about learning to speak and read and their excitement is contagious.

In our classroom, the children have a voice.

They learn using concepts they are interested in and make choices about what they read and write about.

Our classroom is a family and a safe space for learning and fun every day of the year.

My Project

Do you remember when childhood was all about playing? When we stayed outside or with our friends until our parents made us come in? When technology wasn't a child's best friend? My goal with my project is to show a small piece of those times to my students. A time when playing without tablets and phones was the norm - and was amazing! A time when we knew how to talk to our friends and resolve minor disputes on our own because we did it all the time. My goal is to also help my English Language Learners use play to learn the language and the norms of playing with friends.

In our classroom, the children use talking and socializing with classmates as a primary way to learn English.

One of the ways I have capitalized on this is to include more play in the classroom. We play to learn math, we play when we synthesize our learning in reading, and most importantly, we save time in the day to just play.

Donating to this project will give my students more opportunities to engage in old-fashioned play. It will increase conversation. It will increase the ability to resolve conflicts. And it will show my children that you can have fun outside of tablets and video games.
