Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am a 4th grade teacher who teaches reading, science and social studies to transitioning bilingual students. These students, who are used to getting nearly all their instruction in Spanish are now taught every subject in English. Consequently, their vocabulary is not on grade level. Often, they have trouble completing reading and homework assignments because they can not comprehend the words in the text and, in most cases, they do not have an English-speaking parent who can help them. If my students had dictionaries at home with them, they could use them to build their vocabulary and look up words they did not understand.
