My students come to school every day, rain or shine, ready to learn no matter the circumstance they came from, so I want to make sure all their needs are met!
My students have a passion for learning language that is bigger than you can imagine!
They all come from Spanish-speaking homes and are sometimes the only one in their homes who can speak, read and write in English. Most of our families fall below the poverty line for where we live and one hundred percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. This year is the first year that they will be in an all year English classroom, and I want them and their families to feel like they have materials at home to help them excel in this new endeavor.
This project is all about literacy! We are requesting new graphic novels so that the students have up-to-date books and have literature that is rich and also has pictures to support the words!
As students acquire a new language, they need to be practicing multiple domains.
This project supports the reading domain with the books and then it supports speaking and listening when the students use the retro headset headphones.
My students need to practice all of the areas of literacy, and they do this in centers during the day. These tools would greatly impact the students' learning and their success at acquiring English, their new language.
