Ms. Hollis from Newport News VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need English Language Development Activity Cards to support reading, writing, listening, and speaking during independent work, one-on-one intervention, and small group activities.
I teach in an area that receives a large number of immigrant and refugee children. Within our district, over 77 languages and 104 countries are represented. We have several centers housed within neighborhood schools to provide sheltered language and academic instruction to English Language Learners needing intensive support upon arrival in the United States.
I currently have 2nd and 3rd-grade students from a variety of countries and linguistic backgrounds.
Some of these students had access to education in their home countries and are working to translate their academic knowledge into a new language. Others have had interrupted or no previous education and have a great deal of work ahead of them as they make the transition into our educational system. Regardless of their background, each one of them will need high-quality materials and instruction to build the vocabulary and comprehension needed to excel.
Due to the ongoing effects of Hurricane Maria, our program has seen an influx of students from Puerto Rico. Currently, one-third of our enrolled students were displaced from their homes. The materials requested in this project will support them in developing their English language as well as support their continued academic progress.
My students spend all day working hard on acquiring English. While learning a language comes easier to children than adults, it can still be a challenging process. I am constantly looking for new materials I can bring into our classroom to keep the process engaging and fun.
These activities will support my students in mastering written and spoken language skills while having fun!
This leveled set of language development activities would make an excellent addition to our classroom because it would support independent and collaborative work with vocabulary and grammar. Students could also intentionally work on missing skills with classroom volunteers. With the influx of students displaced by Hurricane Maria who had significant previous academic experience, these leveled resources would provide for better differentiation that is appealing to students at all stages of language acquisition.
