A Book Out Of My Mind!

My students need a Spanish novel classroom set. A good book that can make their imagination wander to places they never taught possible!

My Students

My students are energetic, curious, and eager-to-learn fifth graders who come to school with a smile everyday, no matter what circumstances they may face. For all of my students, Spanish is their first language. They work very hard each day to become stronger readers and to get ready for middle school. Unfortunately, there are not enough resources to ensure that all students are given the opportunity to achieve at the same rate as non at-risk students. They deserve novels that will engage their lively personalities. We want to keep their minds blooming, all they need is a good book!

My Project

The novel chosen by my students has the capability to shape how our kids view themselves and others, understand the world, build relationships, and value their own voice. My students want to read Fuera de mi.

It is my responsibility as their teacher to make sure my kids are engaging in texts that have meaning and that will expand their view of the world.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our 5th bilingual classroom by building stronger readers!

Nothing better than a good book that can make your imagination wonder to places that you never taught possible! Right? My students are on the journey of growing as readers and my goal as their teacher is to help them improve their literacy skills with books that they can fall in love with!
