I teach a group of twenty-one first-grade students in one of the cities with the highest crime rate in the nation. All students at my school site receive a free lunch. 97% of my schools student population is Hispanic; most of them first generation. School is one of the only places in which my students interact with someone who speaks academic English. Living and attending school in a highly impoverished urban setting, my students are not exposed to many educational experiences outside the classroom. Given this information, making my students learning engaging and entertaining is highly important to maintain them focused on their education.
