My Students

Students in my class are part of the school's two-way bilingual program. This means that all students are learning material in both English and Spanish throughout the year. Approximately half of my students are native Spanish speakers and thus learning English as a second language throughout the year. The other half of my class are native English speakers who must learn the Spanish language and also meet lesson objectives in Spanish.

After several years at our school, many of these students are now bilingual and able to read, write, and speak in two languages.

However, students still struggle with learning new vocabulary and comprehending texts without visuals.

My Project

Students in my class have activities and group projects. Moving desks around make this activities cumbersome. This Allied Hardwood Chemsurf - Topped Science Table with Adjustable Glides will allow students to focus on the work assigned in groups with ease.

They will be already seating around it with materials needed to complete activity assigned, whether is solving a math problem, a share writing activity, or a discussion about the book they are reading.

My hope is that with a table like this the idea of having to move and put desk together for group work will be eliminated.

Think, pair, share and round table are some of the examples of the activities my students do when work in these groups.
