Here at my school we have 150 English language learners representing a variety of countries and cultures from around the world.
We have 18 different languages spoken in our school and 21 different countries represented in K-5th grade.
Students in my classroom are at a variety of language proficiency levels.
We are a Title I building, which means many of our students are from low socioeconomic backgrounds. A large population of our students receive free or reduced lunch prices and all kids have the opportunity to eat a free breakfast. Students at my school receive many donations. These include things like clothing, school supplies, food, and even dental services.
My students receive one on one language services through our ESL program. Although this may be challenging for most, they always have a smile on their face and are eager to continue learning. We celebrate our diversity and the unique and rich culture this bring to our learning community.
We recently went to organize our library and realized we have so many good quality books and not enough shelves to put them on. HELP! Our classroom needs these bookshelves so students can quickly find books on their reading level to read during independent work time during reading class each day.
We desperately need 2 more bookshelves to make our library makeover complete.
These shelves will help our classroom library and reading nook be organized in an orderly way. Kids will be able to quickly shop for high interest books to put in their book boxes to enjoy during reading time.
We can't wait for our library makeover to be complete and hope you'll support us in this way.
