My Students

My students are an amazing group of third graders who reside on the northwest side of the city of the Chicago. Although most qualify for free and reduced lunch, their circumstances do not define them! They exemplify what it is to be a determined hard working global citizen and value what this country offers them. They are all from Latin American backgrounds and speak Spanish as their first language. They are avid soccer players and love helping around their community! They are indeed awesome!

My Project

"Maestra, maestra, quiero leer!" This is what I hear each and every day. My students are all English language learners, all of Hispanic descent and most are on free and reduced lunch. It would be an understatement to say it has been difficult to provide them with the materials and curriculum they need. The resources we have are all in English and research has shown that fostering their native language is the best strategy for making a successful student. I am asking for your help to fulfill the wishes of these eager readers!

We are in need of Spanish book novels for our third grade dual language classroom.

These book would coincide with our reading workshop unit and would provide the students authentic books that they can take home and read in the classroom in Spanish.

With your help we can help make these eager learners, life long readers.
