Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

As a grade 3 teacher in an inner-city school, there is always a need for resources and I am willing to go to any lengths to get my students the resources they need! Why? They deserve a top-notch education as any child does. They already struggle with academics, as 100% are second language English learners and they need even more resources and support.

In our school, 100% of our students qualify to receive free or reduced-price lunches, so there is a definite economic need for these resources.

I thank you for looking at my project page and I thank you from the bottom of my heart on behalf of my students and their families.

My Project

Tonight as I prepared to teach the next unit of our social studies curriculum I thought, there has to be a more exciting way to teach this! So I took the unit and wrote a play based right out of our history textbook! Each student will get a copy of the play and they wil be assigned characters in the play! I'm so excited I can barely contain myself! There are 6 scenes starting at Life in Jamestown all the way to the end of slavery in 1860. Students will act out the scenes. They will say their lines with meaning and entonation! We should be able to have a class or two come see it in our classroom! Of course with masks on!

These pilgram bonnets and pilgram hats will be the icing on the cake!

A full costume is the best part of the play! They love to get dressed up! I am so excited to see them on Monday so we can start rehearsing our classroom play!
