My students are ESL pre-K students. Their families come from various countries. The students are limited English speakers or may not be able to speak English. Their families do not speak English or speak very limited English. My students come from low-income families and attend a Title I school.
My students and their families were affected by Hurricane Harvey and are slowly rebuilding their homes.
This is their first adventure in school for the children. They are afraid for the first few weeks, and then they begin to learn the English language quickly. It only takes a few months until they begin understanding and speaking English.
Many of our families are still working to rebuild their homes. Some of the children are not able to play in their home and have limited toys in their temporary homes. Most of their toys were ruined when the water came in their homes. Many are still not living in their homes or have their own bedrooms and toys.
My students want to learn and read about seasonal science and social studies. Scholastic provides a magazine for each child to read, with bright colorful realistic world photos. Pk students are just beginning to learn to print awareness and will enjoy the large bold words. It helps students to be able to track the words and use the pictures for context clues.
Most of my students lost their possessions in the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey.
Their families are rebuilding their homes. My students will be able to take the Scholastic magazine home to read to their parents and discuss what they learned at school. They will be able to rebuild their library at home.
