My Students

Being bilingual and bi-literate in today's world is an invaluable skill and our students have been well on their way since kindergarten. Some speak Spanish and others speak English at home, but all come to school to learn in both English and Spanish at our dual language program.

Our students are readers, explorers and doers.

From day one in our K-5 school, they are taught to see themselves as readers who can build their own learning through exploration of books. For Spanish-dominant and English-dominant students alike, reading is a means to build language and communication skills. Our kids come from different linguistic, cultural, socioeconomic and national backgrounds and they learn side-by-side irrelevant of society's prejudices. In the early grades, they spend the majority of their day learning in Spanish. Each year they add on more time in English. By emphasizing Spanish as an important mode and target of learning, we will continue to elevate the status of the Spanish language and Hispanic culture among our students.

My Project

Our school has participated in a Book Bowl for years. Our kids have been motivated enough by it to volunteer to read several novels through the winter and coach one another on learning big ideas and small details about each book. Our Book Bowl has always been conducted in English, which sends the message that English is the language students should spend most of their energy on.

We're bringing the Batalla de Libros to our school this year so our students see how powerful their skills can be in Spanish.

This project will provide book sets so that fourth and fifth grade teams can test their mettle en español and elevate the status of their skills in the Spanish language as they go.
