My Students

Our students hail from a variety of different countries representing a diverse group of English Language Learners. Our school is located in an urban district, nestled in a residential neighborhood off of a main thoroughfare.

We meet with three different classes, two first grade and one second grade class.

Our students' home languages include Haitian Creole, Spanish, Portuguese, and Vietnamese.

Our children are so excited to learn and love coming to their ESL class! Watching them grow and achieve is the reason we show up every day!

We have high expectations for our wonderful students and want to provide an environment that brings out the best in them.

Thank you for reading!

My Project

It is necessary that all classrooms are outfitted with a proper classroom library in which students are able to access grade level texts. It is also necessary that the classroom library have a rug for sitting and reading in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Our students come from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Having access to high quality literature in a proper classroom library is crucial for our ESL population in order to continue to make advances in their academic and core curriculum. These rugs will create a comfortable, welcoming space for our students to sit for whole group instruction and our daily read alouds.

We also want to create an independent reading space for our center activities.

We plan to carefully organize our leveled reading books to provide easy access to our students as they transition to independent and buddy reading centers.

We currently have no bins for our books nor is there a suitable rug for our students to sit on.
