We are a Dual Immersion 2nd grade class getting ready for the diverse needs of our global society. We are a title 1 one school located in San Diego, California and 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our school serves TK-5th grade.Many of my students come from a single parent household. A majority of our students are second language and multi-cultural learners and come from low income / high poverty families.
Our Dual Immersion students are learning to become fluent in both Spanish and English.
Proficiency in more than one language is a valuable skill that will benefit our students and community. My students are faced with several challenges both inside and outside of school. I try and provide a safe environment for them to enjoy and look forward to coming to school.
My students are learning to be proficient in both Spanish and English in both reading and writing. I have two classes with 24 students in each class that share a classroom library. I do not have enough Spanish books at their reading levels. We have many 2nd grade students reading below grade level and I need to get books into their hands so that they can increase their fluency and comprehension skills.
I want to make each student feel successful and empowered when it comes to literacy.
I want each student to have an opportunity to work on their reading skills by having access to books at their own reading level and be ready for 3rd grade.
