My Students

My English Language Development first grade classroom is made up of 20 diverse 6 and 7 year olds in a Southern Arizona title one school. They come to school with varying experiences in learning English. Some of my students have had very little expsoure to phonics and reading.

The students are eager to learn every day they come to school.

Some of my students are refugees from Africa, the Middle East and small Pacific islands. They are very vocal and love sharing stories about their lives and where they came from. Each child has a unique background and I incorporate their background of their parents do not have enough money to provide hands on learning materials. My students are expected to sit a greater part of the day. They have very little time for "exploration" at school or home, so its important that they have classroom opportunities to explore with reading materials to develop reading skills and make real-world connections.

My Project

My students would benefit from more hands on learning experiences during their daily literacy centers. The center activities I have selected will help keep my students engaged and excited. Students work in groups of four during centers and activities like Splash! Reading Games are great for student collaboration.

I want my students to become better readers and the experiences they will have with these centers will help improve their reading skills and confidence when reading.

My students are learning English and visuals such as the ones in Picture It! Daily Comprehension Activities are beneficial to their learning. I choose a variety of activities to ensure every student is interested and focused during centers. My students are advancing daily in reading and comprehension and these reading activities and games will further their reading abilities.
