My Students

My students are a group of young artists! They love art, science, social science lessons, hands-on activities, exploring, and creating unique artworks with words and ideas. There are 40 wonderful second graders in my dual language classes who spend half of their day in an English-speaking classroom and the other half in a Mandarin-speaking classroom. They love creative math lessons and hands-on STEM activities. They work very hard every day and study all subjects in both languages according to Common Core Standards, as well as Next Generation Science Standards.

My Project

One of our integrated study units is to help students develop an appreciation of the differences among the people in our classroom, throughout our school, and our neighborhood.

My students are curious about the world around them, and they have an aw for the awareness of different races, cultures, and ethnicities in our local community.

"Ms. Yang, do you have skin color?" This is one of the many questions I often hear from my students when they are creating a self-portrait or creating art of our local community. In our classroom, we have students coming from multiple cultural backgrounds and enjoy learning and sharing as a team. Generating artwork of their daily life will help my students studying and not only recognize differences in our community but develop a more in-depth appreciation. The composition books, paper, and highlighters will help them record diversity they observe in their daily lives and from reading related texts. Students will use the black ink to practice Chinese calligraphy writing as a way to study another culture.

Learning about inclusion, equality, and celebrating our differences should start early in students' lives, so that they can appreciate our differences and our similarities!
