Help me give my students a chance to engage with literature even if they can't read yet by using wordless books.
I work with 80 sixth through eighth grade English Language Learners. They come to us with a variety of language backgrounds, and a passion for learning. Our students can be completely literate in their first language or come from a community where they were not given the chance at an education. It is my privilege to help these students navigate a new language, culture, and country.
These middle schoolers are incredibly diverse and bring their own story to the classroom.
As their teacher, it is my job to help them to embrace and tell that story. To be proud of their first language and to grow into their second. In our class, we work to create a safe space for all students to learn and grow.
This year I have been given the opportunity to work with newcomer refugee students from a variety of African nations. Most of these students have spent their lives in refugee camps and have little to no formal schooling. My students bring such passion and zeal to the classroom, and I want to make sure that I can provide them with materials that stoke their love of learning.
Wordless books, like Journey, Quest, and Return in the Aaron Becker Wordless Trilogy, are the perfect way to ensure that all students can grow a love of reading.
We can work together to supply them with narratives that they can enjoy as they learn the basics of reading and writing. These books will allow my middle schoolers to feel like a part of the classroom with books of their own to enjoy, as they learn the alphabet and sight words.
