My Students

My students are as happy as you can get as second graders. They love to learn and explore! Being at a Title I school, they come from difficult backgrounds and experience the traumas that come with poverty. The majority of the students are also English Learners. In order to give them every opportunity to access the language, they need to be introduced to material through multiple methods (such as hearing, seeing, touching, speaking, etc.) As children living in poverty, they need every opportunity at learning that every other child receives. That means access to appropriate technologies and high-quality teaching.

My Project

Students who are learning English need to be exposed to the language through many different modalities. Our classroom is lucky enough to have iPads so students can use apps to practice reading and math. Headphones are needed so they can hear text being read aloud, hear instructions, and hear words and pronunciation that is completely new to them.

Hearing is an incredible part of learning!

As students hear information that is presented to them, they are able to create meaning in a new way. It is important to expose students to new information through different senses, and hearing is one of the most important!
