My Students

The students in our classrooms are part of a newcomer program just beginning in the Shelton school district. We work with middle, junior high and high school students who are bilingual and multilingual. Students are just beginning to get the hang of things in the US education system and learning how to do school as well as how to speak English. Some of our students have had interrupted formal education experiences, meaning their experiences at school have not yet been consistent. Yet our students bring a wealth of knowledge to our classrooms as well as great resilience and motivation to learn; providing ways in which students can pursue further education and literacy development in their home languages is one way in which we can promote the acquisition of English and future success in general education settings. Furthermore, fostering family and community involvement, integration and supports is another way in which we can foster our students' long-term success' as they are involved in some big work.

My Project

As a nation compiled of people from all over the globe, as well, as rich indigenous cultures, our education system must support those newest to our society and diverse from mainstream cultures. Language development research provides that fostering home language development and literacy transfers to English language and literacy development. Please help us to create our classroom library. The books on this list are mostly Spanish language books and for a variety of readiness levels. Making sure our students are learning about their new culture as well as see themselves and their home languages and cultures reflected in the materials we use is critical for making them feel safe and valued and the learning relevant.
