My Students

"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one." I love my job! I get to work with the most amazing young learners everyday. We have a diverse student population represented in our school. Our school is packed with terrific, energetic students from pre-k to 5th grade. They love exploring and learning new things. The majority of our students qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program based on family income being at or below the poverty level. We also have a high concentration of ESL and special needs students. These young learners are eager to explore everything we have to offer.

My Project

We need more language and writing practice that is developmentally appropriate for our kindergarten students. About a third of my students speak languages other than English. I need materials to develop language and writing skills for all my students. These journals and art materials will help me grow language skills with my young learners.

We will create stick puppets using construction paper and craft sticks and write about our experiences in our journals.

Some of the puppets will have a simple poem for them to use to practice oral language skills. I've been busy making patterns for alphabet puppets the students can create using simple materials like construction paper, glue, and craft sticks. All we need are some simple materials and journals to bring this project to life.

Students will be actively engaged in creating the stick puppets and learning the poems and rhymes to help them practice oral language. They will gain confidence and practice in their speaking and listening skills as well as how to communicate through writing in their journals. You can make a huge and lasting impact in my students' lives by giving to bring these materials to our classroom.
