My Students

Our Spark Huskies are a wonderful group of students that seek to be better than their circumstances. They come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 60% of our students receiving free lunch. We help students learn English while holding on and becoming literate in their own language as well. Everyday they make sure to not just persevere through their economic and language barriers by working hard and persevering in their core classes but they also go above and beyond in their extra-curricular activities such as basketball, dance team, theater, and volleyball; just to name a few.

My wonderful 7th grade Huskies are in terrible need of reading books, any books but, specifically Science books.

Our kiddos love to learn new things, especially anything that relates to what happening in the real world. These books will assist them in widening their perspectives on the world around them as well as, increasing their knowledge base for these future scientists.

My Project

My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy and providing Science rich material will help enhance their growing desire to learn. Building their background knowledge with books that they can read in leisure or as a content supplement with help them inside and outside of the classroom.

My kiddos have enjoyed learning about the atoms and molecules as well as, creating different projects where they exhibit their knowledge of Plate Tectonics and different types of Energy.

We are learning about Chemistry, Physical Science, Earth Science and Biology within the 7th grade. I've chosen material that are easy reads but also provide core content support information on the what we've learned in class. For example , the "Lightening Bolt Books" are great because they tackle many of the subjects that we cover in 7th grade. Also, "El mundo de Tecnologia" in Spanish will be a super help to our kiddos that are better readers in Spanish but still learning English in class.
