My Students

As an ESOL teacher in a diverse school community, I service over 60 kindergarten and first grade students who speak Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Jamaican Creole, Romanian, Mandarin, French and Krio. ESOL students are often faced with many challenges, however, these scholars are unique individuals who are eager to learn and never give up.

What I admire the most is their ambition, creativity, and hard work!

These attributes are what drives them forward and helps make them successful as they acquire language.

My Project

Quick recognition of sight words is essential in developing reading and writing skills. When working with kindergarten and first grade English Language Learners it is extremely important that I help students master learning these words. SnapWord cards will allow my language learners to not only have a visual support to help learn sight words but also gives them a motion to remember the word. These sight word cards will engage students in learning sight words.

SnapWord and Alphabet Teaching Cards will reach my visual and kinesthetic English Language Learners and help them quickly learn their sight words!

As my English Language Learners become more confident with their sight words, they will be able to use them to improve their reading and writing.
