My Students

At the end of the school year I want my kids to be unrecognizable when they write an essay. My greatest challenge is that my students have a language barrier. I see how they stress trying to read and write simple paragraphs in English.

In our school the student population is over 50% economically disadvantaged.

My students are eager to learn English. When my students understand a certain strategy they are just waiting to call the answer out. If you would walk in to my classroom right now you would notice I have a few kids who are so quiet. I want to change that.

My Project

With the materials I am requesting my students will be able practice writing sentences, paragraphs, vocabulary, and grammar in English. Students will be able to copy a sentence stem and complete the sentence. I would be able to help my beginner ESL students independently with the phonics kit. I have included a set of dry erase markers since they have individual white board that they use frequently. I want them to improve writing sentences and passing the 7th grade STAAR writing test.

This project will improve my classroom because it will bring voices that have never been heard while speaking English.

This will make my students more comfortable and not be afraid to speak in front of other English speakers.
