Help me give my students a diverse collection of children's books about the different cultures and backgrounds in our classroom. The stools will provide students with flexible seating and a pencil sharpener is requested for daily use.
I am an ELL teacher in a diverse neighborhood school. All of my students speak English as a second or other language. Some of these students were born in another country and moved to the U.S. with their families. Our students attend school in a low SES area.
These students are special because they celebrate and embrace their cultures.
The students are motivated and determined to learn the English language and succeed in the classroom. Many students are limited English learners, with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. They are hard workers determined to learn English and do their best in school. They are a pleasure to teach every day!
These books will provide opportunities within our classroom where students can share about their cultures, languages, and backgrounds. My students will be able to share their experiences with other classmates, and sit in flexible seating while doing so. The pencil sharpener will replace two broken sharpeners from the last two school years.
The multicultural literature will provide students with books that they can connect to.
Students will be able to read the books in the classroom independently, or I can design lessons to teach students about different cultures and holidays. The students will be elated to see literature that connects them to their culture. I believe these materials will motivate them to learn English and appreciate their own culture as well as other cultures.
