Vibrant Visuals!

My students need a laminator and laminating sheets; a color printer and additional toner so they can see vibrant visual images of what we are leaning in English.

My Students

My students are curious and intelligent children. I teach English Language Learners in suburban South Carolina. Our school is a Title I school, with over 60% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Currently, I travel to two different elementary schools and one middle school. I work with children whose native language is not English. My students come from many different countries and cultures. These wonderful children speak 2 or 3 languages. Each child is special and adds their unique life experiences to our classroom.

All of the children are eager and ready learn.

I want to provide them with the best English learning resources available. We work on primary skills to build vocabulary and make the English language comprehensible. Students work on Language for Math, Science, and Social Studies. We practice reading, writing, speaking and listening in our classroom.

My students need more materials to increase engagement. Children, especially English Learners, need to be actively engaged in learning. They need to touch and manipulate the concepts we are learning. They also need to see what we are discussing. Our classroom needs a variety of resources to promote learning. I want them to succeed today and in the future.

My Project

I work with my students in small groups. It is very important for my students to have vivid and clear visuals. I need to show them what we are learning with printed pictures. The requested color printer and laminating machine (with additional toner and laminating sheets) will help me to create materials that will last for years to come.

I will be printing and laminating brightly colored games, flash cards, story sequencing cards, and posters for the classroom.

We will use these materials to learn English words and retell stories. When we use color printed visuals, student will have a clearer understand of what we are learning in our classroom.
