Mrs. Veloz from Paterson NJ is requesting instructional technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Let’s Hear and Say It!

Help me give my students earphones that work when they use our technology from the listening center to the computer learning activities. The emotion mats will support their language, social and emotional development.

My Students

My students are diverse as the candy Skittles. We may differ in culture, ethnicity, religion, academic, social and language abilities but we all share the same passion for the desire to learn and to succeed.

Common Core Standards have arrived.

We are a nation that lacks students who can effectively read and write. In an effort to change this from becoming the norm, we are now challenging students to be that researcher and writer but we must first teach them how to do this and to do it RIGHT! Our nation lacks readers,writers and fact finders.

We must go back to basics and teach students how to read and write the RIGHT way. My class consists of active, eager and motivated kindergarten and first grade students. Don't let their age fool you for I see their potential and their ability. They can do it if we instill the love of learning and teaching them how to read and write the RIGHT way. As the famous baseball movie quote “If we build it they will come” for me it is “If we inspire and motivate, they will love to learn and they will study and succeed".

My Project

My students are learning to communicate in our very complex language. They are learning to read, write, listen and speak along with all other aspects of academic school. Having earphones that work can support the listening. They will hear correct pronunciation and be able to block out distractions. This will support the speaking and the direct and systematic content purpose activities and lessons support the reading and writing. The emotion cards will support language acquisition and the ability to communicate one’s feelings using words. Emotional and social development are so important in today’s world. Both are important tools for a child’s development.
