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

I teach hardworking, resilient, English Language Learner students in a Title I-funded, low-income community in Oklahoma City. We are a diverse community with many different educational needs.

The students come to school eager to learn new things.

My students work on four key WIDA domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing during their time in the program. To help facilitate better learning opportunities and more intentional language acquisition, I try to provide an environment where they can have fun learning, take chances, and see themselves progressing with the English language. In my classroom, we celebrate each other's achievements (big and small)!

My Project

When children first come to school they come with a lot of knowledge from home. Sometimes that is coming to school only speaking their home language. Our students' diversity is very important to us. We love celebrating each other and our differences. Our classroom library is packed with English books, but we lack books in Spanish. I want to also bring books into my library that represent their home language and culture. Many parents in our school community are eager to read with their children, but are unable to because of the lack of books in both English and in Spanish.

When building a classroom library, you always want to make sure that the children in your class see themselves in books.

My goal is to provide my students with books that they can read in their home language. Many of my newcomer students struggle in reading in their homeroom class because they are given a book in English and are expected to know what is happening in the story. Giving them a copy of "The Tale of Despereaux”, "Smile!", or other books in Spanish will allow them to be more successful in completing assignments that go with the book.

Virtual school and COVID has took a huge toll on my ELL students. They’re the silent ones in their class and the invisible ones online. Most of them are further behind their classmates. My newcomers are struggling trying to learn what they missed last year and what they have to learn this year. That’s why I am requesting a colored printer so that I can print off resources for them in color and bilingual books so that they can read by themselves and/or with their family.
