My Students

I am a two-way dual language teacher in a Title I school, and my class is full of energetic learners that hold so much potential! In a two-way dual language classroom, the students come from many different cultures, and it is important to give them opportunities to see themselves in the books they read.

50% of my students are fluent in Spanish and are in their second year of becoming fluent in English while the other half is fluent in English and on their way to becoming fluent in Spanish.

We are a switch classroom, and I would love to incorporate something different to keep them excited about coming to my Spanish classroom every other day. Students love to read books about their favorite characters, but they also love to see characters that look like them and sound like them. Spanish books are so hard to come by, and we are in need of more to help our students grow their literacy skills. Help our first graders be as successful as they can be.

My Project

Spanish resources are hard to find, and without them, it is difficult to grow this second language. Books such as the non-fiction Times books that reference their science and STEM lessons in Spanish will be helpful in bridging the gap between the two languages. Fiction books such as "Dentro de mi imaginacion" will also provide students with fun reading and listening opportunities. Students learn with hands-on activities and through storytelling.

Other hands-on activities such as the flashcards, word builders, and syllable charts will help students learn and grow their bilingualism by providing hands-on opportunities to share with their peers of different native languages.

These resources are a dream for my classroom, and we hope that you can help support our class!
