My Students

My students come excited to learn in two languages, as part of our Spanish Immersion Program that was adopted ten years ago to meet the need of our cultural and linguistic diversity in our district. Six years ago, parents got organized and successfully implemented uniforms at our school. This has helped our students to stay focused on learning and it has provided a positive learning environment for each student.

I am enriched and blessed by my students' diverse cultural, linguistic, and economic background.

More than 85% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my kindergarteners students get the amazing and unique opportunity to start learning in English and Spanish from K to 12. Close to 25% of my students' first language is English, and 50% of my students' first language is Spanish, and 25% speak another language. They share the journey to be able to graduate from high school bicultural, bilingual, and bi-literate; it all begins in my kindergarten classroom.

My Project

Most five-year old love Legos! For the first time, our school is having a Lego club after school once a week where six of my students get an opportunity to be creative. They are loving every aspect of it and they are always taking to peers about their positive experiences and all the things they get to create. One particular student ask me if we could have our own mini-Lego club in our classroom for her to show her peers how to be creative too. I could not believe her leadership qualities at age five and how much she wants to share with peers what she is learning! Of course, I agree with her, it will provide opportunities in the classroom for her peers that are not able to participate due to the fee or after school transportation.

This creative Lego set and the mats can get us started in having our own Lego Club in the classroom.

It could be an additional activity during our inside recesses and during our Bilingual Center time at the end of the day. I can see how the students can use the printed templates as a guide to be creative. Legos can provide so much more than just creativity, it can help with their fine motor skills, math number sense, expression, language, community building, cooperation, and even leadership.
