My Name is Jorge On Both Sides of the River: Poems in English and Spanish

My Name is Jorge was read to a fifth-grade bilingual class. The lesson plan will give you specific details about the work done. The children like the poems and they were energetic about using computers to copy the poem and create a presentation on Power Point. These are some examples of the children's work.
