Ms. Miranda from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the ability to learn social and emotional skills through this set of awesome read aloud books.
My third grade bilingual class is composed of very vibrant, energetic and eager students! They come in ready for the challenge of learning English, as I transition them during the year. My students come in with various levels of proficiency in English, but for most this is their first exposure to their second language. It is always rewarding at the end of the year to see their comfort level and their newfound confidence as they speak English with more ease.
My students live in a gentrifying neighborhood and face many challenges every day.
Our school is composed of 95% low income and qualify for free breakfast and lunch. We have a high attendance rate which shows the commitment students, parents and teachers have towards their education.
My students have always enjoyed gathering on the rug and listening to fun and engaging books, especially if they can make a personal connection! As the year goes on, students need guidance as to getting along with others, using appropriate words with one another or overcoming obstacles. Using a variety of books geared toward these skills, will provide me the opportunity to continue to engage my students through rich and meaningful discussions. My students will learn social skills such as understanding their feelings, controlling their emotions and how to problem solve, among others.
Through these read alouds, students will not only learn appropriate social skills but they will also increase their language and vocabulary skills.
I am confident that my students will enjoy listening and reading these books but most importantly, they will greatly benefit in both learning the language and promoting important life skills.
