My students need clipboards and toy animals in order to have portable work surfaces and toys that will provoke questions about animal habitats.
My students are diverse. A quarter of my students are recent immigrants from Guatemala, a quarter are second generation Spanish speakers, and the other quarter are English speaking students. All students are learning in both Spanish and English.
I am proud to teach in a dual language elementary school that honors this diverse student population and provides an opportunity to learn two languages from an early age.
My school is a public school in a small school district (3 elementary schools total). Over 90% of my students receive free or reduced lunch.
At the beginning of our unit on animals and the habitats they need to survive, the toys will be used to help them generate questions about why animals belong to certain habitats. Kindergartners need tools to play and explore ideas and the toys will give them this opportunity. The clipboards will help students to take notes during our field trip to a local state park that has both a marine and forest habitats.
The clipboards and toys will help students actively participate on the field trip and in the classroom by allowing them to play and discover where each animal belongs.
In addition, the clipboards will provide flexible work surfaces for them to use in the classroom on a regular basis.
