Resources for Students Learning English

My students need vocabulary and word family support to help create sentences in English as they begin to read and write the language.

My Students

My students are from a small town in Palm Beach County and come from a variety of different economic backgrounds where 91% of students are on free and reduced-price lunch. Some students come into class without knowing any English! This has been the story for many of my students this past school year. Although I have students from various backgrounds, my school did receive new students who were displaced because of Hurricane Maria this school year. These students have moved to Florida because of devastation and destruction to their home and school in Puerto Rico. This effect has given these children a new home, school, friends, language, and culture. I have been enjoying supporting my newest students. After giving them time to feel welcome to our school and community, I have found areas where I can help them grow and develop within their overall academics including reading, writing and learning to speak English. I love to watch all the growth and accomplishments of every child, every day. Year after year, my heart only grows bigger for all of my students with each year of teaching. Every child has a special place in my heart.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students' learning by allowing them to visually see the written words with pictures through learning vocabulary. They can then apply these new words to the opposites of the words and synonyms to expand their vocabularies as they continue to learn in English. The flip book words will show similar words with the same letter patterns with visual support to understand the meaning of the words. Students will also use picture and word cards to create sentences. This will help as they read, write and speak to share and make connections with the new words they are learning in English.
