Let's Get Talking!

My students need hands-on manipulatives and pictures to support their learning of speaking and listening in English.

My Students

Why is it we always want out kids to be quiet? I want my kids to be talking and engaging in English conversations relevant to classroom content and curriculum! Help us with our confidence in speaking and listening in English!

I teach English Language Learners.

My student population speaks over 25 different languages at home, other than English. They attend an Elementary Public school where they are just beginning to learn how to speak, listen, read and write in English. They are motivated and caring students who value education.

My Project

The resources I have requested will help all of my English Language Learners in my ELL classroom. I teach grades 1,3,and 4 ELL newcomer students. These students have arrived to the United States this year with little to no English language experience. My students would be able to confidently ask and answer a question of the day with the given pictures and simple English words. My students would also be able to learn prepositional phrases with the hands on materials. Prepositional phrases is a very hard concept for my students and having the picture cards and manipulatives will allow my students to better understand which phrase to use! And lastly, the oral prompt boxes will be exciting for my students to use. They will really enjoy picking questions and forming sentences with partners and the whole classroom to share. It will be engaging and fun! And best of all it will get us all talking, on topic!

My project is important because so often we ask our students to be quiet and sit still at their desks.

The resources I have asked for will allow my students to be talking and appropriately engaged in listening and speaking. They will gain confidence in their abilities to hold conversations with English and non native English speakers. Please help us gain these valuable resources!
