My Students

Students in my classroom come from low-income families in Chinatown, Manhattan of NY. My classroom is an ICT class with a mix of English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities. My students all have different learning needs and academic levels that it becomes difficult when it comes to planning activities for them to work individually on or collaborate in small groups.

Elementary school years are very important where a strong foundation should be implemented for these students.

My students' small accomplishments mean the world to them; it helps them boost their self-confidence and self-esteem.

My Project

As a teacher working with a diverse population across different age groups, I see the need of a structured phonics program for students who are struggling and/or below grade level.

I've heard many positive feedback on a program called I have recently attended a phonics workshop called "Fundations", which is through Wilson Language.

This new phonics program will enhance my student's five key components for reading: phonemic awareness, phonics and word study, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. This program is geared towards students´ individual developmental levels and overlaps skills instead of teaching foundational skills in isolation. I really hope to attend this workshop and implement what I've learned in my classroom.
