My Students

I teach a diverse group of students in a public high school. My students come from a variety of countries and different socioeconomic backgrounds. My students range from 9th to 12th grade and are eager to learn a new language.

Some students may be learning a language for the first time, some speak Creole because of their Haitian roots, and some speak English and Spanish and are learning French as their third language.

My students need appropriate and up-to-date resources to help them learn French and be successful in this endeavor.

My Project

Students will be able to use these manipulatives in hands-on activities while using the French they've learned. The dice and decks of cards will be used to practice verb tenses, while the bingo boards and chips will help learn numbers better! The wooden sticks and student grouping pencils will help ensure students are all given a chance to participate as well as work with different classmates. The fly swatters, spinning arrows, and game pieces will be great for whole class activities and review games. The pretend food will be used as props when students perform skits in French.

The manipulatives requested in this project will be an awesome addition to my French classroom!

I am certain that student engagement will increase as a result.
