My Students

My classroom is a classroom where I encourage students to take chances, learn about themselves and build on experiences. We do a lot of hands-on activities with Math.

I am an ESL teacher.

My classroom is made up of half ESL students and half traditional students. We are a Title I school where 83% of the students are of low socioeconomic background. In this class, we build a community around what we have in common and our shared experiences. We are part of a larger school that celebrates inclusion. I teach in a wing of four first grade classes. As my students make gains in my classroom, they begin to try smaller projects on their own. My classroom is about growing, learning, and building skills to get better. We celebrate little wins together each day. I would love to be able to provide some of the experiences to my students that I experienced as a child.

My Project

This resource will allow student to listen to stories and bring reading to life. Because they are listening attentively, they will increase their sound and reading recognition of words more fluently. As they become more confident and joyful in their abilities, they will shine and blossom. When students are able to hear good reading, they can imitate what they have heard before. This resource will help my students develop a lifelong appreciation of reading.

I ask that you allow them to experience another side of reading so they too can become lifelong learners.

Thank you in advance for everything.
