My students come from all different backgrounds and cultures. Almost all come from low-income households. My school is a place where students can learn in a safe and loving environment.
My students are faced with challenges in and out of the classroom.
I do not want the lack of materials to affect their love for learning. My students have come from all around the world, from many different and often difficult situations. Many of my students have very limited schooling in their own language and are now thrown into a formal school setting expected to learn our English Language.
I am requesting speakers for our classroom computer and a classroom iPad. My ESL students love to sing and dance. Our computer volume does not go up very high and my students are not able to hear the songs that we play. Having speakers will help my students feel more comfortable singing in English when they can hear the words of the song. Singing is a great way to practice our speaking skills and become more comfortable with the English language.
I am also requesting a classroom iPad.
I do not have an Elmo or a projector in my classroom. This way I can show videos and songs while circulating the classroom. I can also give one on one assessments with my students using the iPad.
