My Students

My students are English Language Learners. Most of my students are new to the country and have never been in school before. They are kind, loving, sweet, pure, and innocent. They are eager learners. The majority of my students speak Spanish, but some of my students also speak Urdu. Most of my students are only exposed to English while at school. When students go home they speak the language that their family speaks or the language that they feel most comfortable speaking.

My Project

Kindergarten is the time when students are learning the basic skills they need to do EVERYTHING. Technology is becoming a huge part of kindergarten. In kindergarten, students are learning how to log onto computers, type in their username and passwords, access their online computer programs, and follow the on screen directions during lessons. That is why my students need a laptop and an iPad with a case. The students need these in order practice their online lessons. Everything now a days revolves around technology, so we need to bring more technology into the classroom and teach students the way they want to learn.

Writing in every lesson is another huge part of kindergarten.

My kindergarten students are writing every day, so they will be prepared for kindergarten. However, my students are still learning how to write their letters and numbers. That's why my students need single dry erase boards and clear view tracing boards to practice writing their letters, numbers, words, and sentences daily. We also need a large magnetic writing paper, so I am able to model their writing for them.
