Mrs. Ascencio from Newark NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Making a Difference!

My students need the privacy folder, listening area, seat storage, and table containers to make it easier for them during instructional time. All of the supplies will be beneficial for the students during their instructional time.

My Students

I have a class of 20 Kindergarten bilingual students. This is my first year teaching at a public school and Kindergarten. The school runs a dual language program where my students keep their native language which is Spanish and learn the second language which is English. One week we learn in a world where we speak, write, and read in English no Spanish then the next week we learn in a world where it is all Spanish no English. We do this for the whole school year one week English one week Spanish.

" Let's try new things and show the rest of the school we are worth for two because we are learning two languages."

My students come in every week knowing that it is time to change language and that they are willing to learn something new. The interest to learn makes me keep on teaching them and continue to the end. It is almost the end of the school year and my students know how to read, write, and speak perfect Spanish and English.

My Project

The listening skills center will be a great change in my classroom because my students will be able to increase on their listening skills while practicing during centers on the CVC skills center. Student’s concentration during test time will increase all with the help of the privacy folder. Students will focus on what they are doing and not what the others write.

Student's transitioning is very important.

Students will be able to use their own materials during group time by having the cup holders for their crayons and the supplies separated by groups. We all know space for storage is what we lack in our classroom. Students will definitely benefit from the seat sacks because they will have their supplies right in back of them with easy access. It is very important for students to be ready to learn and grown into a routine. Having access to their materials will be a smoother transition from subject to subject.
