Mrs. Sana from Santee CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Book in Their Hands,a Window Into the World.

Help me give my students more books to read. A book in their hand is a window into discovering new abilities. Reading a book like "Quince" will lead them to understand important rights of passage in other cultures.

My Students

I have 140 students eager to learn Spanish. I teach in a small community in San Diego county. My awesome students are monolingual English speakers who are in a journey to acquire a new language and in the process widen their horizons about the world around them through multicultural learning.

This is a 2nd year Spanish class; and after one year of strong academic growth these kids are ready for more.

In this class they will widen their understanding of the world through multicultural learning.

My Project

In a global world students in the United States need to be bilingual in order to be competitive in an international work force. Reading is the most efficient to acquire a new language.

My goal this year is that my students will read 8 novels in Spanish.

They are specifically designed for second language learning. My students are now capable of independent and small group reading. We will be using this books every day rotating the tittles so that each student will be reading 4 of these books this year. Your donation will get us to 8 books per student.
