My Students

My students are eager, enthusiastic, hard-working, and creative. All of them speak a language other than English at home and are learning English at school. All of them receive free lunch because of their low socioeconomic status. My goal is to provide my students with rich educational experiences that support them as they build their reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills in English. I also create opportunities for engineering, problem-solving, and hands-on science activities which encourage them to use higher level thinking and academic language. Your support for my students shows that you see their potential as contributors to our community.

My Project

These materials will be used cooperatively by teams of students as they learn and practice literacy, math, and engineering skills while also building skills in interpersonal communication and problem solving. The students will work with partners or groups of four and use the magnet tiles and dough to complete building challenges. Magnetic letters on a white board will allow kids to practice words and spelling patterns as a team.

The game and teamwork style of challenge based learning will be engaging and make learning "stick" better than more traditional ways of practicing skills.

Students will be very excited to use these materials and that will support their interest and attention as they practice skills and learn to solve problems with their teammates.
