I teach in a Title One school in Sunset park Brooklyn. I teach a first grade class comprised of 18 English Language learners. My students learn English as they learn to read and write. Hands on experiences play a tremendous part in their success. When the children have a shared experience it allows them to communicate a little easier. When the activity is engaging the fear to talk takes a back seat to the need to share an idea. The children have become very interested in animal studies, particularly in the food chain. They were fascinated in the diets of different animals and who was a predator and who was the prey. They were fascinated by the ways animals camouflage and protect themselves. I would like owl pellets and four books about these fascinating birds. The owl pellets would allow the children to examine the various bones and discover who falls prey to the owl. The experiences will provide rich conversations as well as develop observation skills and strengthen vocabulary. The books would help introduce and reinforce concepts and ideas as the children continue to investigate. By studying owls for a long period of time it would allow the children to use the new vocabulary and scaffold each days language and learning. I have opened owl pellets before and I can tell you the experience is one that creates a desire to discover, theorize and TALK. When I ask the children who enjoys learning, they always shout back. WE DO!
