Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

We are a K-5 elementary school in the inner city. My beautiful second graders live among high-density apartments and/or crowded neighborhoods. Students often share their bedrooms and spaces with siblings and other family members. However, school is their world where they feel safe and protected. It is a place where they have a sense of belonging. Each student has a desk and a seat to call his/her very own. My students love to learn and are curious about the world around them. They work hard, and deserved to be rewarded!

My Project

This project is based on the book and song, The World is a Rainbow. The idea behind the title, is that "the world is a rainbow, that's filled with many colors...with many kinds of people; It takes all kinds of people, to make the world go round."

I want to celebrate the beautiful diversity in our classroom and world by adding rainbows and more color to our classroom.

Picture books, art projects, labels, everything and anything in bright, beautiful colors! The diversity library set and multicultural biographies will be a great way for my students to see themselves, and connect to a variety of people. The play-doh will be great for a science lesson, as we mix the three primary colors to create even more colors! The collage frames will be used to showcase all my beautiful students! I want my students to celebrate their own individual and unique differences, and learn to appreciate the differences they see in others too.
