Help me give my students Versatiles for math and literacy so that they can practice the skills we are learning in class.
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education,” Martin Luther King, Jr.
I aim to help my students own the skills and confidence to realize their dreams.
I want them to dream big. The elementary school I work in has about 400 students, most of whom come from low income families of various backgrounds.
I teach in a Spanish bilingual classroom where more than 90% of students are English Language Learners. Some of my students are also not proficient in Spanish. They often come with low reading and writing scores in Spanish and English. Many of the students are not yet independent thinkers and have difficulty articulating their thoughts both orally and in writing. Often they lack the confidence to problem solve and defend their thinking in both languages. Additionally, they are often intimidated by English. My goal is to show them all they can do in both languages.
All of my students are language learners. Some are having difficulty acquiring the necessary skills in English Language Arts and Math in order to succeed in 4th grade. In order to provide my students with further opportunities to practice I would like them to have access to Versatile games and puzzles. These tools will be used during indoor recess, with our high school volunteers, and during after school tutoring with struggling students.
Twice a week after school I will meet with 6 students who are struggling in math and reading to give them extra support using the versatile materials.
Because these materials are hands-on and fun, the students should enjoy the extra learning time.
