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

“Bright,” “energetic,” and “enthusiastic” are a few words that describe my second graders. They are a group of 7 and 8-year-olds whose minds are always exploring new ways of learning and processing information. My school is a Title I school, so 100 percent of my students are bilingual and come from economically disadvantaged homes. They get served free breakfast, lunch, and supper. My class is comprised of students with different abilities of learning. Such as gifted and talented, dyslexia, and special education. They come to school with wide smiles and are eager to learn. They love to be in school, what most consider their second home. They are full of energy, always moving, and always wanting to learn about the world around them.

My Project

Many of my students refuse to read books at their reading level because "they don't have images," and as a result, they do not progress in their reading.

Graphic novels, on the other hand, fly off the shelf; my students adore them!

If my students had the option of reading graphic novels, they are more likely to read at or above their reading level. Because reading is such an important part of learning, and strengthening reading abilities takes time, these pupils require options that appeal to them. Help me grow our classroom library and give the students the opportunity to fall in love with reading!
