My Students

My kids are amazing! I am at an inner city charter school that is 100% Somali and English Language Learners. These students come to school with a bright attitude but limited resources. Many are newcomers to the United States. I would love to be able to provide them with more supplies that could help benefit their learning.

My students have a high drive to learn however face struggles that most students don’t have to being 100% low income at a Title I school.

Our school has been open for 2 years and is striving to give all of our students their best possible chances for an amazing education. Many factors play a part in making this happen such as funding for supplies and resources that either the student or school is unable to provide for them.

Although I don’t mind spending money out of pocket for my students, there is still no way to be able to provide them with many of the other opportunities higher income students are fortunate to have without help from others in the community.

My Project

I will be using the desired books above for my student’s literacy block. When our staff discovered this reading curriculum we were so pleased to see it not only align with the state standards but also be extremely engaging!

My students need books they can relate to!

I particularly appreciate the variation of the books from fiction, nonfiction, poetry, tall tales, and biographies. They all will give the students plenty of practice with comprehension, fluency, and grammar. The books will help the students improve their reading levels and our understanding of so many genres.

I look forward to having a hard copy of these books for my students to refer rather than having to project the books through a 2nd party reading it to them via YouTube.
