My Students

“If I had $1,000 I would buy a house so that homeless people can have somewhere to live. Then I would buy all of them food and clothes so they don’t have to be hungry.”-4th grade student

We are located in one of the zip codes with the highest percentage of poverty.

Even though a lot of my students do not have a lot, they are always willing to share. Whether it’s sharing a glue stick or bringing a friend a taco, my students always do what they can to help each other out.

In our class, we encourage one another and try to help in any way we can. One of our ongoing goals has been to increase our reading fluency and comprehension through activities and independent reading times. The needs of my students are very diverse and meeting those needs is very hard. Unlike other monolingual students in the same situation, my students are learning in English and Spanish, which gives them a bit more work. Although they often complain about the fact they have to learn double the vocabulary and do work in two languages, they never give up!

My Project

Reading is an integral part of developing our children as lifelong learners. As a bilingual classroom, the reading material is limited and very expensive to purchase. Thanks to donations and some gifts my students have books available to them. In an effort to expand their reading options, we are now integrating online libraries with tons of new options! I was extremely excited to integrate these programs, but quickly fell short. Students are able to read, but are missing a chunk of the program because they cannot listen to it. This portion is so important to both my students reading below level and those reading above level.
