My Students

My students just turned three years old. I am piloting a three-year-old half-day program in an inner-city low-income school.

The children are excited and ready to learn.

Most of the students I serve are English Language Learners and will be in a bilingual program.

The mission of this program is to teach children English and sustain their Spanish speaking skills. Starting early will give them a head start on their educational journey. This will enable them to have many opportunities in their futures, but also facilitate educational success.

My Project

My three year olds need a variety of literacy materials such as magnetic letters and writing boards in order to develop their literacy skills.

Having these materials help the three year olds make sense of letters by playing, sorting, building, and matching them, in order to make sense of what literacy looks like in their world.

Most of them are beginning to call letters by their friends' names. For example, this is Mia's letter etc.

The next step is to transition them to the actual name of the letter. This is easier since they relate the letter to their names. However, having these materials would make the transition easier.
