My Students

Our first grade classroom is full of imagination, laughter, and excitement. We are a very fun and energetic class that learns Spanish through reading, working on wonderful science and social studies projects, creating our own fiction and non-fiction texts and many other interesting activities!

This is my fifth year teaching in the USA and I am honored to teach a group of wonderful first graders.

My students spend half of their day learning first grade subjects in Spanish as part of the dual immersion program at our school. There are 44 children, aged 6-7 who are simultaneously learning core subjects in English and in Spanish. They all love learning through our projects!

My Project

My students love reading however we don't have comfortable seats where my kids can relax and enjoy reading a good book. They love to read and get their hands on great books wherever they can. Reading off and on throughout the day at their desks sometimes isn't that comfortable and all that's in our library so far are just bookshelves of books and an old armchair.

Our classroom library needs a little love and some library seating is definitely what we've been missing.

I've requested two storage benches and some bean bags to place in our little library area in our Spanish classroom. Reading is more enjoyable if you are reading comfortably!
