Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

I teach 20 third grade students. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best varies greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

Providing my students with a variety of independent reading books along with new supplies for the school year will help keep their excitement for reading going.

My Project

This year hasn't been like typically years. We are still dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. As we transiton back to school from winter break I would like to provide my class with new books and supplies.

Having these new books and supplies will help my students continue to be excited about reading.

This class I have loves to read but I'm finding it hard to keep them engaged because I do not have a new collection of books.

These new books will help keep their love of reading going and supplies will help us start fresh.
