My Students

My school is a small school with a big heart! We celebrate our rich diversity in ethnicities, languages, and socioeconomic status, which all contribute to the exciting and positive culture of our school. We have a strong focus on the Common Core Standards and the arts. Students are given the opportunity to thrive in an exciting educational environment.

Being a Title 1 school, we have 89% of our students in the free and reduced-price lunch program.

30% of our students are English Language Learners and 25% are students with special needs. Despite all these challenges, our students and families are amazing people and we are lucky to be a part of such a special community.

My Project

I implement literacy centers in my class. This requested listening center set will allow groups of students to access quality learning time while I am teaching other groups. With the listen and learn phonemic awareness program, my students will turn on a CD and follow the step-by-step instructions to build their essential phonics skills. The program has enough materials for up to eight students at one time, including 128 write and wipe activity cards and 4 CDs with 16 different activities.

This program will be especially beneficial for my English language learners and help them to get a firm grasp on the foundations of reading and literacy.
