My Students

It is an honor this academic year to have young scholars who are eager and determined to learn. The school is classified as a Title I school. Therefore, the scholars and families lack basic essentials. Many of the scholars in my classroom have recently arrived from their native countries. The scholar's native countries consist of the following: Bangladesh, Lebanon, China, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Senegal.

My class is categorized as English as New Language.

In addition, the scholars are deficient in foundation skills (e.g. Addition, Subtraction etc.). Many of my scholars have not had the opportunity to attend elementary school in their native countries. The scholars’ academic deficits are in the following subjects: Language, Reading, Writing, and Math.

However, despite the scholars' academic deficits, they are enthusiastic and ascertain to learn. I am dedicated to supporting scholars and families by providing school supplies (e.g. notebooks, pencils and book bags).

Finally, I support the scholars to develop self-confidence, independence and thrive to succeed academically and socially.

My Project

Scholars need English Language Development Activity Cards - Complete Set for oral reading, expression, phonics and to increase fluency.

Scholars will gather in small group instruction for core subject of English Language Arts to practice and attain comprehesion skills.

Scholars also need the Holidays Around the World Paperback Library to develop fuency and learn about multicultural diversity in the community, national and global levels.

Scholars would benefit from the Holidays Around the World Paperback Library, because scholars could also develop reading comprehension.

The Leveled Library Checkout and bins are desperately, needed since the classroom is small in size and we do not have enough bookshelves and storage for our leveled books. Therefore, the

Leveled Library Checkout would be a perfect fit for the classroom.

Scholars need desperately, all of the materials and resources.
