SEF Provides Grants for Emergent Bilingual Instructional Support

Silsbee ISD has a growing population of Emergent Bilinguals as Texas educates one of the highest percentages of bilinguals in the United States. Educational research shows visual tools help Emergent Bilingual students grasp new ideas, access previous knowledge and gain confidence in using the English language. Visuals also reduce student anxiety, increase comprehension, and can even later help them with decoding skills. 

This SEF grant provided hands-on materials and visuals that promote listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills for Ms. Denita Miller’s Kindergarten students, specifically the Emergent Bilingual students. Ms. Miller states “As you can see from the photos, my students’ learning experiences were greatly enhanced due to the hands-on materials and visuals that were purchased using the grant funds.” Thanks to Ms. Miller for her teaching innovation and care for her students.
