My Students

I have 20 preschool age students, who are predominantly from a Latino/Hispanic background. For many of them, their first language is Spanish and unfortunately, they are living within the poverty guidelines. We are a Title I school, so our population of students receive free lunch. However their unfortunate circumstances, they are extremely enthusiastic when I send them videos of me reading books to them about the topic we are studying during the week. We are using computer and app technology to communicate where I can teach lessons and they can keep on learning during this unprecedented time. They are in need of the experiences and opportunities that every child needs and deserves.

My Project

The materials that I am asking for is predominantly books in Spanish. I will use these books to read-aloud to my Pre-school age students in their native language. I will read these books to them through our classroom application that we are using to communicate which is ClassDojo. I video myself reading various stories and students listen to the stories at their own leisure. Children at this age need to continue hear adults reading to them aloud daily to increase their reading readiness skills and to help increase their comprehension skills.
