Second-graders in Danielle Finocchiaro’s ENL class at May Moore recently discussed the importance of names. The students listened to Juana Martinez-Neal’s “Alma and How She Got Her Name,” then went home to interview their parents about the stories behind their own names. They asked questions about who picked out their names, how the names were decided on, if there were stories behind the names, and if their names had any personal or cultural meaning to their families. The second-graders then shared the answers with the class.

“It is so important for children to learn about their names and appreciate their uniqueness,” said Finocchiaro.
