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

My students are such an amazing group of little learners! They are curious, kind, and so much fun to be with as they explore the wonderful world of second grade. Their smiles and laughter make me the luckiest teacher ever!

I feel so incredibly lucky and thankful to spend my first year teaching with my amazing group of 2nd graders!

Each student in my classroom absolutely loves learning and books! For many of my students, gathering together as a community on our classroom rug for our morning meetings, story-time, and group projects is their favorite part of the day!

My students love to give hugs, high fives, and excitedly share their stories and learning with one another and me! They are kind to one another, with everyone being friends who love to work with one another and play together during recess.

I work at a Title I-funded school where all of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students have unlimited potential, and I work as hard as I can to give them the education they deserve!

My Project

Elementary students love learning about bugs and insects and it is a science unit covered in 2nd grade. My project is for books with beautiful, engaging pictures and science information on bugs and insects at child-friendly levels. Young learners love books! These books would be used to introduce science lessons with the teacher reading to the whole class as well as be available for independent reading time.

Students would love curling up with a high-interest book on bugs or insects in the classroom library!

My project also includes a small group activity center with hands-on activities for students to classify bugs and insects and complete writing activities This activity center includes magnifying glasses and real insects in resin and storage boxes.

Thank you for reading and supporting a love of learning!
