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 work at an amazing school as a fifth-grade teacher. Our mission statement is “Inspiring kind leaders; preparing for bright futures.”

My students are all fifth graders who come from a variety of backgrounds but they all have one thing in common, a desire to read as many amazing books as they can and learn as much as they can this year!

My class is made up of a variety of students, including English language learners and students with special education needs. It is my job to help them find their voices and be ready for their futures. Much of that requires exposing them to an amazing assortment of books and awesome furniture to make learning fun and exciting. In my classroom, I am hoping to create a flexible, collaborative learning environment where students can feel comfortable expressing themselves and can be successful every day. I'm hoping my students can learn many things and can challenge and push themselves beyond their potential!

My Project

Please consider donating to my project to give my students some new nonfiction books for our class library as well as some fidgets to help some of our struggling learners.

These new nonfiction books would be so amazing to help my students be able to explore the world around us.

They have really learned to love reading nonfiction and I want them to be able to learn about all of these amazing new topics!

The fidgets will be used in our classroom when students are struggling to focus and need a little distraction that won't distract others around them.

These books and fidgets would be such a great addition! Thank you in advance for your consideration to donate to our project.
