Vocabulary Is Key!

Help me give my students the opportunity to broaden their vocabulary with dictionaries and magnetic whiteboards so they can comprehend text on their grade level!

My Students

I have so many diverse students in my classes this year! They are hard working and love to try new things. Many of them are English Language Learners with low vocabulary background knowledge.

All of my students are bright, fun-loving, and ready to learn!

The only thing that is holding some of them back is a lack of vocabulary. But with the right tools and instruction, I believe that we can win that battle!

My students just need the opportunity to learn new words! I hope that they will have that opportunity through the use of these elementary dictionaries and that they will have fun learning using dry erase boards!

My Project

One of the only issues that stand in the way of my student's growth is a lack of rich vocabulary. If given the proper tools to learn new words, I believe they would excel! The dictionaries will be used in whole group and small group to provide students with the opportunity to look up new words and make connections to what they are reading. The whiteboards will be a way for students to practice writing the new words they learn in sentences! The donations that are made will be used to help my students meet their goals this school year!
