My Students

My students are a great bunch of third graders that are ready to learn. My students are considered ESOL learners as many of them are from various countries and speak various languages. Most of my students come from immigrant families, and many of them qualify for free or reduced rate lunch.

My students are excited about learning, and enjoy coming to school.

I want to continue to help my students learn, succeed, and feel safe in my classroom. My students are great students and deserve the best.

My Project

All of my students are from low-income families, and all of my students are English Language Learners. My students need a computer and headphones to use for small group and center work during reading.

English Language Learners need extra help learning terms and processes for reading, and a computer and headphones will help them learn in a tech/student-friendly way.

Students use technology everyday in their lives, so allowing them to learn with technology can help them in the classroom. The computer will allow me to set up electronic assignments, allow students to watch videos to explain literary concepts (even in their native language) and allow me to download apps for enrichment learning. This technology will help my students become more comfortable in reading and allow them to learn the required concepts, vocabulary, and various technological features.
