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 an excited bunch who are always eager to learn new things.

While they all come from very different backgrounds and home lives, they are all the same in their dedication to school and learning.

My school resides in a neighborhood where many of the families are immigrants and speak languages other than English. Many of my students enter school speaking little to no English, but are excited to learn the language. Their different cultures help to make my classroom a diverse learning space for all.

My Project

This year has been quite a change for students around the world. With students coming back to classrooms, there are a lot of changes happening.

These books and indoor recess supplies will help to make my classroom a safe place for my students to be.

They are so excited by graphic novels right now, so the "I Survived" series will be a great addition to our classroom library. The Magna Tiles will also be used to promote creativity during indoor recess. I know my students would love to receive these resources!
