My Students

My school and student population is special. At my school, students have the choice of being in the English or Dual Immersion track. Parents have a choice even though it's a Title I school. In my classroom, we learn Spanish 90% of the time and English 10% of the time. Some students speak only Spanish, some only English and a few are considered bilingual. As the years progress, they learn more English and less Spanish until they're learning 50% of the day in Spanish and 50% of the day in English.

My Project

With a nice and tidy class, my students will learn best. It is important to keep a clean and organized classroom in order for students to love their learning environment. With a nice centers management chart, my students will be able to easily access their reading center by looking at the images. In the classroom, I keep positive behavior by having students earn five stars and then getting a reward once they accomplish it. With the magnetic photo cards, my students will easily access their name and know how many more stars they need to earn a reward.

We are also learning Spanish in the classroom!

With the fun Spanish file game, students will learn their alphabet, sounds and high frequency words. Way to go students!
