Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

Our middle school students are learning at a TK-8th dual immersion school in Oakland, CA. They are smart, talented, compassionate, and are world changers. I love watching them get into reading and I would love to see them have more access to books in our classroom. Throughout middle school, it is beautiful to watch their eyes open up to a greater world through their middle school experience and I want them to have more opportunities for this to happen through reading.

Our school is very diverse including newcomers from Central America, Black, Asian, and Latinx students from Oakland, and a few white students who want to learn Spanish.

These students learn from one another and grow by working together in a collaborative, project-based environment with a focus on social and environmental justice. They have so many talents and we just need a little help to get them the resources they deserve.

My Project

It is hard to find good books in Spanish that are interesting for our middle school students. Having books that they can relate to, think are funny, or become captivated by, helps them to engage in reading and improve their reading in Spanish. For many of our students, Spanish is their first language and being able to use the transferrable skill of reading in Spanish will also help their reading in English.

Our school library has many wonderful books, but having books in our classroom is even more important.

By having books available in the classroom, students can choose books easily and have my help in recommending books that are at their level and that I think they would enjoy.

This project will help open new doors for our students by giving them new worlds to discover through authentic books they can relate to and identify with in Spanish.
