My Students

My scholars love school and are eager to learn! They can be seen showing their leadership skills by reading to a classmate, assisting a younger scholar with classwork or organizing materials for a group project. When visitors enter my classroom, they always compliment my scholars on how engaged they are in discussions about books and conversations about using innovative strategies in math. They show their communication skills by making announcements to the class and "turning and talking" to their partners.

Each of my students come from low-income homes.

The cultural make-up of our students is as follows: 91% Latino (Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Ecuador), 7% are African or African-American; and 1% are Asian. 36% of our scholars are English Language Learners. More than half of our students are part of after-school programs that allow them to be active, express themselves on stage, or develop their skills in reading, writing and math.

My Project

My scholars are studying animals and all the characteristics that makes each animal special! They need multiple resources to learn about what their animal eats, where their animal lives and what their animal can do! We need books to help learn about animals. These books have been carefully chosen based on the reading levels of my scholars, their interest in specific animals, as well as the information that each book provides.

My scholars are avid readers that are interested in colorful non-fiction books that are engaging and informative.

These books will provide them with the details they need to learn about the animals they love.
