Ms. S. from Bay Shore NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Building a Bilingual Book Collection in the School Library.

My students need bilingual, Spanish-English books. Many of these deserving young people have had no formal education and many have not mastered basic native language skills upon which to build.

My Students

Our school has recently received a large number of immigrant and refugee students with diverse language needs. Over 40 percent of our students receive free lunch. We are a racially and economically diverse school community.

Many of our students do not come from literacy rich homes.

A significant number receive additional services for special needs including speech and other therapies.

My students are bright and eager to learn. They are proud to be here and want to work hard to master English.

My Project

The school library curriculum follows state and national standards. These bilingual books will be used by classroom teachers, students, and their families to build basic literacy skills through read-alouds, small and large group study, and family story time through regular student book checkouts.

Having books that offer students' first language in addition to the target language will facilitate the scaffolding of vocabulary instruction.

A well-equipped school library must have materials available that reflect the needs of all users. A bilingual book collection will empower some of our neediest students and help build fluency and language skills. It will also ensure proper representation.
