Mr. G. from Jamaica Plain MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bilingual Spanish English Dictionaries

My students need 40 Bilingual Spanish-English dictionaries to use in reading their US History books and for their ESL classes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My recently arrived students to the USA are in my sheltered US History classes and need dictionaries to improve their vocabularies, learn English and be able to read the English based texts. I also tutor many of them for the MCAS and SAT and a personal dictionary will help them stay in school and graduate.

I have about 80 students and have donated well over 18 dictionaries but the majority of students (80% come from families earning less than $30,000). The school does not provide dictionaries and I would like to have each student have its own dictionary for his/her personal use.

The solution is a basic English Spanish dictionary which will facilitate their learning. My students have a 95% attendance record, are great young people and this gift would make it easier for them to complete their homework.

Your donation will make it easier for my students to participate in all classes and to complete their homework and enhance their vocabulary.
