My Students

I teach first grade at a Title I school in South Florida. We have a large multicultural population. In addition to English a few of the languages my students speak at home are Spanish, Portuguese, and Haitian-Creole.

My students are like most six year olds.

They come to school everyday curious and eager to learn. They want to make friends, play and learn. However most also come to school hungry. They get free breakfast and lunch at my school and also on Friday's receive a backpack with food to get them through the weekend.

My Project

Scholastic News is a weekly non-fiction magazine. The magazine has interesting age appropriate articles. When the children realize they can read the articles in the magazine it motivates them to want to read more. Something happens to a child when they realize they can read, their eyes light up, their posture is a little straighter and their words are a little more fluent when reading.

First grade is when children learn to read.

I want my students to want to read for pleasure. There is something to be said about six year olds and non-fiction. The children look forward to the magazine.
