I am the second-grade teacher in the school that serves a very high number of ELL students. This year, I have over 30 amazing ELL (English language learners) students in my classroom, and one fourth are newcomers. I teach them all subjects – Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading and Writing.
There are over five different languages spoken in my classroom, and it represents a wide variety of individuals with different social and economic backgrounds.
All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of them receive free school supplies, too.
A typical day in my classroom consists of many differentiated learning activities where students constantly interact with each other and learn from each other. We literally use every second that we have and my kids are exhausted by the end of the day, Ha! Honestly, though, our day goes by so speedy fast that we don't even realize the day is over.
I would like to offer my students an extra daily practice with Equivalency Puzzles, complete set of Place value, Time, Money and Fraction puzzles in order to help them acquire these sometimes difficult concepts to grasp.
These puzzles would be especially important for my special education students as they need frequent reinforcement of a skill taught.
Furthermore, I truly believe that this set of puzzles would benefit the entire classroom as it would help them develop skills in place value, operations, money, fractions and times. Privacy Partitions would help students create an instant, distraction-free environment for math tests and quizzes.
