My Students

My students are ages 8-9. The majority of my students are ELL (English Language Learners) whose parents work most of the day and into the evening. They spend most of their day in school, and in after school programs. Sadly, my students do not get a lot of adult attention or support and come to school in need of emotional support as well as academic support.

The students that I have are hardworking, determined, grateful, and curious.

These are just a few words that describe the amazing young people that enter my classroom each day.

My students try to learn to the best of their abilities but need a lot of small group work. They are eager to learn yet often times when they leave here they no longer have the English support they need. I try to engage my students in the classroom as much as I can by providing a variety of activities and send them with things to do at home to support the work we did in class. They are our future, and I want to give them a great start to their long successful careers.

My Project

Many of my ESL students come from diverse backgrounds and often come to us on various learning levels. My ESL students have no letter and letter sound backgrounds in English, so I must start at the beginning with them in reading instruction and also language development. The Phonics Magnetic Word Building Boards will build their decoding skills. The Bobs Books will help them learn English and how to read. They will learn letters, blending sounds, reading comprehension and MOST IMPORTANTLY build confidence. BOB books are proven reading tools. The Guided Reading sets will help me to be able to work with a small group of students and listen to what they share with the group, listen to their reading, provide guidance for their reading, enhance their language, and assess their comprehension.

Your generous donation would allow a classroom of students to have many opportunities to practice a language that is very difficult to attain.

With these resources, students would be able to practice all different forms of language independently or in a small group, supporting each other. By giving the gift of language, you will be opening many doors for my students.
