I teach at a Title I school in East San Jose. A majority of my students are first-generation Americans with hardworking immigrant parents. Seventy percent of the students at my school are receiving free or reduced-priced lunch.
I teach a wonderful group of Kindergarten students.
My students are hard-working and enthusiastic learners. They are easily motivated and enjoy attending school every day. They are always excited to try and learn new concepts. My students inspire me every day to be a better teacher.
Many of my students are English Language Learners with different learning needs. They learn in a variety of different ways. Many are visual and auditory learners so they need engaging and interactive activities that will help them learn. I am requesting a subscription of Starfall. Students will use this online literacy and math program during centers. Starfall has many phonics and letter recognition activities and games that target beginning language learners. They also have videos and animated nursery rhymes students can watch, which can help my English Language Learners learn to speak English. It will also help them expand their oral vocabulary. The best part about this program is that it is interactive and user-friendly. I know my students will enjoy using this program as part of centers.
