My Students

My students are preschoolers who are very energetic, caring and eager to learn new things. Our class consists mainly of English speakers with a few English language learners.

My students are very hard working and excited to learn even if they have to do it from home.

Many of my students come from low income households that depend on the school for more than just an education. Although they are all about the same age, they are all very different types of learners and all have very different but wonderful personalities.

Our classroom is typically a very busy place with students playing and eagerly learning many different types of things throughout the day. This year we are trying to create a similar environment in their homes as we learn and teach online. I love that they are able to learn from each other by working together to figure things out. Our classroom is a place where everyone feels safe and loved and where they can make mistakes and know it's okay.

My Project

Scholastic magazines help spark new learning with our young learners. I will be able to provide each student with a magazine to read in class and then be shared at home with their family. We will read these together as a small group and then have a discussion based on what we read which will help students expand their vocabulary and improve their language skills.

Being able to provide each student with a subscription to a Scholastic magazine will not only further their knowledge about different topics but will also increase basic skills that will help them be better prepared for kindergarten.

Students will have access to a digital version that they will be able to access from home. They will also have access to other fun games, activities and videos that are related to each magazine.

I can assign these activities to the students to work on independently, and they can continue to either practice basic skills or use some reasoning and logic skills. These magazines can then become a part of their personal libraries.
