I teach Kindergarten at a Title I school. The majority of our students receive free or reduced rate lunch and come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. A high percentage of the students in my class are ESOL as well as some students with special needs.
My students come from diverse backgrounds and I love to foster their uniqueness.
They all bring something special to our classroom. They have limited resources at home, and my goal is to provide them the resources needed to succeed.
I teach in Miami and we are in an area where students displaced by Hurricane Maria are fleeing to. These students are coming from Cuba and Puerto Rico. They do not speak the language and often they become withdrawn and shy. I have a center with tablets but I need one more to complete the set to have enough. In this center, I use the tablets to download phonics, sight words and vocabulary applications. These activities on the iPad will greatly benefit my students who are learning English. The protective case will keep it from being damaged. The students have been through a crisis and using the interactive activities will be enjoyable and entertaining. At the same time, it will improve their English language skills.
It is essential that we make our students fleeing the destruction of Hurricane Maria feel at home here in the United States.
