My Students

My students come from all backgrounds and are in my classroom learning the Spanish language in our dual language, Montessori program. I teach K3, K4 and K5 students, and all of them love the materials in our classroom. The littlest ones use lots of manipulatives and the older ones are learning to read and write and be leaders in our classroom.

We sing songs and learn about our world through reading books and observing the world around us.

Our time in large group activities are especially nice, where we can talk about the seasons of the year, the calendar and all of its parts, and share a snack and reading time together.

My Project

Montessori classrooms have lots of hands-on activities for learning. We begin with the five senses (to see, to hear, to taste, to touch, and to smell) and then make connections from there. My project is focused on the reading process, beginning with objects to learn letter sounds. Although we have a reading program we use, called Estrellitas, we need more objects the children can see and touch to help make the first connection of beginning sounds.

The teaching tubs in the Spanish language will give the students a hands-on experience for sounds, and it will enhance their vocabulary as well.

The book sets and pictures sets in Spanish will be used for individual reading practice for K4 and K5 students that are reading, and also to enhance vocabulary in Spanish. The floor puzzles connect to words and vocabulary that are already in the classroom, and will be an early work for K3 and K4 students, to help them find concentration and learn about farm animals, and later the solar system.
