My Students

Not only are my students faced with the challenge of moving to a new country, they are also faced with the challenge of learning a new language and all of the academic responsibilities that come with it. My students are daily motivated by chanting "Try hard and work hard" in our risk free classroom.

My kindergarten students are a diverse group of lively, determined, and motivated individuals who are striving to reach above and beyond their academic potential.

Everything is BIG in Texas including the opportunity of my students to have academic success. Our campus has a Language Center that fosters a creative learning environment for students of various languages from around the world. Four languages, alone, are spoken in my classroom!! At my school, one will get a worldly experience with one goal in mind, a challenging, yet fostering learning environment for all!

My Project

The resources I requested will assist my students with receiving an education that fosters various types of learning and language abilities. These items will enable my students to reach a higher reading level at a faster pace. Having the resources to cater to my students' academic needs will open up opportunities for a higher success rate, especially for my English Language Learners. With these resources, I will be able to introduce them and let the students utilize them at a pace that is coherent to their learning capacity. These resources will allow my students to have the opportunity to increase their awareness in reading directionality, beginning sounds, middle sounds, ending sounds, rhyming, addition, subtraction, and numerical concepts. Not only will these resources challenge them at a kindergarten level, but will also play a factor in preparing them for the grade levels to come. Kindergarten is the foundation of education and I want to be guilty of laying a solid foundation!

This project will assist with fostering the academic success of each student.

It will aid students in learning the English language and will ease the challenges that English Language Learners often face in a academic setting. My desire is for each student to reach their academic goal and this project will definitely assist me with doing so. Your donation will inspire students to make the best of their education in a fun, yet challenging manner. Have the desire to inspire MY Lively Learners.
