My students are from a large, urban community that welcomes families from all over the globe. They bring a special blend of linguistic diversity, background knowledge, prior experiences and culture to our school. We are a Title I school in a low-income community. I have thirty-five Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) students in my classroom. Free breakfast and free lunch are available to every child in our building each day.
My students are creative, clever and very enthusiastic about learning.
The majority of my students read below grade level. They would benefit from a variety of classroom resources to help increase their success in school. My students need to have technology experiences that help foster 21st century critical thinkers. I want all of my students to be able to have the use of technology in our classroom on a daily basis.
We all know how important it is for children to feel represented in their classrooms, I want to provide my students with materials that show a variety of perspectives and experiences. I will be able to conduct active learning through read alouds during downtime. The reading materials in our classroom library will allow them to have a multicultural and diverse collection readily available.
These new books for our recently established library nook, will allow my students access to books that have characters that are diverse, just like they are.
Students will feel more embodied in our classroom, having these titles will help to create empathy and understanding among students of different backgrounds. All students will be able to read these books to further celebrate our diverse community.
