My Students

I'm a fourth grade ESL reading teacher. I have two reading groups which is a total of 44 students. My goal for every students is to nurture a love for books. One of my biggest challenges is not having enough resources in the classroom.

My students come from a low-income homes, however, they live in a very rich environment!

The neighborhood is full of culture and friendly faces. My students are funny, creative, and so eager to learn. Many are transition students which means this will be there first time in all English classroom. Our school is located right in the middle of a neighborhood surrounded by the beautiful culture.

My Project

Most of my students are transitional which means this will be there first time in all English classroom. Incorporating literature circles with books like Wonder and Manic Magee will help them build their vocabulary, comprehension and a love for books. Incorporating workstations will give them a sense of independence, reinforce knowledge and continued growth. My students also have to prepare for STAAR which they will practice with various reading passages.

These materials will make such a huge difference in my students lives!

Many of my students lack a rich print environment have two reading groups and not enough resources in my classroom. Reading books and passages will help their vocabulary and comprehension to grow. Providing various ways for students to grow in literacy is very important for their future.
