Open A Magazine, Open A Mind!
My students need to build their English vocabulary and cultural and content knowledge with the Scholastic magazines. We also need a globe and an easel in our classroom.
My students are primarily from refugee families who were forced to leave their country out of fear for their lives. They have come to the U.S. in search of a better life. They are curious and resourceful children who come from all over the world, bringing a wealth of cultural and linguistic knowledge.
Our school strives to bring together refugee, immigrant, and local children in an academically challenging and nurturing environment.
Though we have limited resources, we work hard to prepare students both socially and academically.
As an ESOL teacher, I teach them English and academics. They teach me about perseverance and the value of diversity.
My students need to have exposure to nonfiction texts to increase their content knowledge and to build their vocabulary. These magazines will allow us to read about current topics with wonderful visuals to aid in comprehension.
Students will each have their own copy which they can take home to share with their families.
This will also encourage my students to read with their families. Many have limited access to reading materials at home.
The easel gives our class a common place to share our ideas in writing. The globe will allow us to locate the places we are learning about.
