Middle school can be tough. Socially, emotionally, and academically, there can be lots of challenges for students in the early teen years. My students are learning English and adapting to a new culture while navigating these difficult years, and this creates an extra layer of challenge.
My English language learner students are resilient, resourceful, and caring young teens.
These students have been through a great deal beyond their control in their short lives, but they use multiple talents and strengths to overcome current obstacles. We share hands-on experiences as a springboard for launching into a new language. Investigating STEM topics, history and the arts in our language arts classroom allows my older new readers to develop key reading and writing skills with age-appropriate materials.
Students in my classroom are beginning the process of falling in love with reading. It is so important at this stage to be able to keep the books they want to read in their hands. We need more copies of graphic novels from the Bone series and the Amulet series so that students do not have to wait to get their hands on the next adventure!
These graphic novels are books that sell my students on the pleasure of reading!
I am requesting multiple copies of the first 8 books in the Amulet series. I am also requesting multiple copies of books from the Bone series.
