My Students

Our Kindergarten ESL classroom is filled with 26 little ones who are new to the school world. My students come to school speaking Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, and other languages and dialects as their first tongue. Our class is located in a low-income urban area in the lower, south side of Providence, RI. Everyday my students come to school with a big smile on their face ready to learn; my mission is to provide them with the proper tools they need to be successful in and out of our class. I am amazed by how much my students have grown in our first month of school and I cannot wait to continue watching them develop!

My Project

I believe my students need hands-on materials to aide in their learning. I want my students to go above and beyond traditional pencil and paper learning. Unifix Cubes are wonderful tools to use in order to understand counting and cardinality, measurement, greater-than and less-than representations, and addition and attraction. Using the literacy Unifix cubes will help my students learn and play through word building. They can create their own words or use picture dot cards to build Consonant-Vowel-Consonant (CVS) words. Additionally, Kindergartners need proper writing journals with developmentally appropriate lines and spaces to develop and explore their writing skills. These simple yet effective tools and materials will go a long way in facilitating a more hands-on classroom that makes learning fun and interactive.
