I work in a Title I School in South Lake Tahoe. My kids are learning in two languages; Spanish and English. A lot of our kids live below poverty line. They receive free/reduced lunch and often bags of food to go home on the weekend.
Part of what makes my classroom special is that despite the struggles that my children face, they are dedicated students who show up to school every day with an exceptional attitude and hunger to learn.
Our school values all multicultural backgrounds, entails prolific thinkers, and provides high expectations for all. I am so proud to work in a place that promotes tolerance, support and high standards for all.
This project will help my class have access to high interest books in Spanish. This is helpful because my students are developing the love for reading in another language. I am also trying to diversify the level of books in my classroom library. My kids need access to books at their instructional reading level. The One and Only Ivan is an excellent book to conduct reading groups in. My kids have been really wanting to read this book for a long time and this project gives them direct access to the book of their choice. Thank you for your support and love!
