Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 0

I know that these materials that were supplied to me through grants had an impact on my students.  I received an award for one of the highest impact teachers in the state of Florida, and I believe that the materials that were implemented through the grant helped that happen.

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

Our goal is for the kindergateners to have the ability to use the listening center to listen to fiction/non-fiction books being read to them in English. Another goal is to increase the number of readers that we have at a lower level for kindergarten and first graders. 

 

What will be done with my students

The kindergarten ESOL students and the first grade ESOL students will use the listening center to hear books read wtih correct pronounciation and expressions. The centers can also be used as valuable independent work while we work with others in the group on different skills.

By increasing our library with books at a lower level, the students in these low grades will have more available material. 

 

Benefits to my students

Hearing books read and being able to connect visually will help our ESOL students learn English more proficiently. It is also important for these lower level students to have simple texts that they can read by themselves. This independence encourages them toward furthur learning.

Many of our students have parents who do not speak English and we could send materials home with a CD so the students can read at home independently. 

 

Describe the Students

We have ESOL students (English Speakers of Other Languages). Some are non English speakers, and range to high intermediate speakers who are working on perfecting flulency and grammar, and comprehensioin. This year we have about 60 students, and the number is predicted to remain the same for next school year, or possibly increase by about 10 students. These students are hard workers and the parents are very supportive.  

 

Budget Narrative

All materials are from Lakeshore and I have sent my shopping cart to the appropiate person. Thank you
