Dr. Gonzalez from Boston MA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Students With Limited or Interrupted Formal Education

Help me give my students Spanish material that I can't afford at this moment. They don't know any English. Most of them don't know how to read or write because they have an interrupted education.

My Students

My 4th, 5th, and 6th grade ESL students attend a high needs school in Massachusetts. All of my students are newcomers to the United States and some have interrupted learning. They will learn in Spanish how to write, read, and skills in mathematics at their grade levels. At the same time, they will learn English from basic.

My highly motivated scholars have inquisitive minds and a thirst for learning.

As Newcomers, my students need extra supports such as bilingual texts, picture cues, and small group support to meet their more diverse needs as learners. Our classroom is designed to create an intense amount of targeted differentiation to help our students acclimate to a new country and language.

My Project

My 3th, 4th, and 5th grader ESL students attend a high needs school in Massachusetts. As Newcomers, my students need extra supports such as bilingual texts, picture cues, and small group support to meet their more diverse needs as learners. They are Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education. They are not at the same grade level that they supposed to be. We need to help them to be at the same level as the other kids at the same grade levels in their school. Also, they need to learn English, they are a newcomer and don't understand the language.

We don't have Spanish material to support learning in my classroom.

I need to create them for reading, writing, and mathematics. We need a color cartridge to print the specific special materials for them, laminator, mathematics posters to help them visually understand the learning, and different visual materials. Our classroom is designed to create an intense amount of targeted differentiation to help our students acclimate to a new country and language. We begin with silabas in Spanish to help them to start to read in Spanish. We print and post silabas around the classroom with vocabulary with common words to facilitate the reading, and writing. We encourage every single progress with stickers, this will keep them motivated and engaged with the learning.

With students that don't understand English the visual is very important. They can associate the words with pictures, and letter. That the most important part of this project. To give the most possible visuals to help our students succeed.
