My Students

My students come from high poverty, low socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of them live in low-income apartments. One hundred percent of them qualify for government assistance and the federal free lunch program. Many of them are ELL learners and speak English as a second language. However, these barriers do not discourage their love for learning!

These students come to school every day excited and ready to improve their reading and writing.

Their parents are very concerned about their children's education to provide them a better life. Although they are disadvantaged in so many ways, you would never know it by their positive attitudes and eagerness to learn.

My Project

It seems every year we are pushing our students to do more. Today, preschool is more like the old kindergarten that we used to know. Students are tested quarterly over everything from letter recognition to letter sounds and vocabulary.

Don't underestimate these little guys, they are eager as beavers to learn to read!

That's why I'm asking for leapfrog pads and headphones for my students. These tools have wonderful apps and technology to help them with letter recognition and letter sounds. The head phones help these little guys with short attention spans to stay focused on the activity at hand. The students love using the technology and feel like a "big kid."

These activities will have my students ready as emergent readers as they begin kindergarten and their pathway to learning to read.
