Help Students Read! Por Favor Ayuda a Mis Alumnos

Help me give my students the ability to read in their native language. Many students arrive at school as English Language Learners and would greatly benefit from the opportunity to read text in their native language.

My Students

As a teacher of economically disadvantaged students in an urban school district, we face many challenges, both in and out of school. Despite their challenges, my students are creative, energetic, and enthusiastic about learning. I truly want to provide them with a meaningful learning experience they deserve.

As part of our Title I based program the majority of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Most of my students are first-generation Americans and English is their second language. Their parents are trying to do their best for their children, however, money for school supplies may not be a priority.

My Project

My classroom is comprised of 45% English Language Learners. Of those 45%, 35% are Spanish speaking students. Having texts available to students in their native language will offer them an opportunity to read on their appropriate reading level.

Many of the titles selected, for this project, are text used for shared reading lessons.

If the students are able to read along with the same text in their native language they will greatly benefit from the shared reading lesson. They will have the opportunity to complete the follow-up activities, which are translated for each student.

It is so important to make our immigrant students feel welcomed and providing the appropriate supplies for them to utilize can help this process along.
