My Students

My students are curious, smart, and dedicated. Every day, they come to class prepared to participate and eager to engage in rigorous academic learning. My students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, with over 50% of my students receiving free lunch. The students who attend my school speak a number of different languages including Arabic, Amharic, Tagalog, and Spanish. Many of my students are English Language Learners. I serve 24 students in my classroom with 9 girls and 15 boys. Of these 24 students, half are English Language Learners.

My Project

Our school is very diverse, serving families from all over the world. Over a third of our families identify as speaking a language other than English at home. This rich tapestry of cultures makes for a unique and rich learning community, where students are able to learn compassion and empathy for others.

One of the biggest needs in our community are tools that authentically engage students in learning academic vocabulary in a meaningful way.

One way to do this is to use Flocabuary. Flocabulary is a website with a database of lessons that engage students in learning through hip-hop videos. Each lesson is designed to align with the common core standards. Each lesson also focuses on teaching specific academic vocabulary essential for students success.

I plan to align the materials available through Flocabulary in order to enhance the curriculum I am teaching in the classroom. The access to content through Flocabary will help support academic vocabulary that is essentially for the academic success of my students.
