My Students

My first grade students are strong, dedicated, and resilient English Language Learners. Many of my students have not had any formal education before. We are in an urban setting where finances greatly impact my students, both at home and school. Despite the financial hardships, my students are great! They are extremely dedicated to not only mastering their primary language of Spanish, but the English language as well. Mathematics and Science Big books and a Big Book Storage Center would assist my students with literacy materials that are easily accessible.

My Project

Providing my students with both fiction and non-fiction big books with a mathematics and/or science theme will provide the perfect doorway for getting my students interested in the world around them. Incorporating literacy will help my students make sense of, and learn from, mathematics and science text. These Big Books and Classic Birch Magnetic Write & Wipe Big Book Center will assist me in making these literacy materials easily accessible to all of my students. Teaching my students to love reading by making literacy an enjoyable part of everyday life, can also be done with mathematics and science while simultaneously developing the English language.
