My students need foundational materials such as books, games, visuals aids, reinforcement tools and Que Tal? magazine, for an Elementary Spanish program.
Were you fortunate enough to receive foreign language education in school? Our 900 students have the wonderful opportunity to begin learning a foreign language. Help build the foundation for this brand new program by providing basic materials needed to get the Spanish program off to a great start!
Students at our K - 8 charter school are from a low-income area in a family-orientated neighborhood of Philadelphia.
Many of these students have not been exposed to other parts of the world, let alone the country or even areas outside of our neighborhood. Exposure to a second language at such a young age will expose them to a population and language that they would not have access to outside of our school.
The materials requested will provide a strong foundation for the Elementary Spanish program that is in its first year of existence. As a first year teacher building a Spanish curriculum for 900+ students, there are many materials and resources that are simply not available for the classroom. These materials, books, games, visuals aids and reinforcement tools will encourage and motivate the students, as well as provide crucial resources and content.
With the magazine subscriptions, students will be exposed to the global Hispanic population that they currently have no access to. This reading material will allow for discussions and insight into various cultures around the world. This ongoing exposure and discussion will encourage the students to continue to look at populations and cultures outside of their neighborhood.
Any and all donations to this project will directly contribute to the Spanish language learning of 900+ students ranging in age from 5 to 13 years old.
The students look forward to their time in Spanish class where they can be exposed to a new language and other cultures outside of their own world.
