My Students

The students I work with are in grades 1 and 2. They are inner city kids who come from very diverse backgrounds. Many of my students are English Learners, Special Education students, and/or Inclusion students. They are very sweet children who need a lot of love and support.

What is special about my students is that many of them speak another language at home, so they are learning two languages.

A lot of their parents don't speak English so they translate for their parents. They are given great responsibilities at a young age. Their parents can't help them at home so they rely on their teachers for their academic instruction and guidance.

My Project

I am requesting non-fiction book sets in color at Levels E, F and H to instruct my first and second graders. Since my English Learners are learning a new language, they need to see pictures in color to have an accurate depiction of what they are looking at. Black and white books are not useful for ELs.

Since over half of our populations are English Learners, it is imperative that we have the proper books to teach them.

Without guided reading books in color, our students do not have access to the resources they need to make progress in reading.
