Mrs. Woods from Corvallis OR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging Spanish Readers With Variety!

My students need a variety of appropriate level Spanish books to help them learn to read and grow a love for reading!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My group of students this year will come from a wide range of familial, socioeconomic and educational backgrounds. My school is a Title 1 school that works hard to reach students and close the opportunity gap. We have a large focus on equity and making sure students are being equipped with the tools they need to be successful! This year my students will receive 70% of instruction in Spanish and 30% in English.

This school year I will be teaching my students only in Spanish, so the need for quality Spanish materials is very high!

My Project

Last year, I watched my students get discouraged picking out books from our Spanish library because there were very few options. This project would make a HUGE difference in my students' learning.

In first grade, students should read over 100 books throughout the year so a large library with a variety of levels and topics is essential to not only help students develop a love for reading, but also a love for Spanish.

If this project is funded, my classroom library will gain more than FIFTY new books including titles such as ¿Dónde viven los animales?, Boris se mantiene en forma, and La princesa y el guisante. I have spent hours choosing books at many different reading levels, books that have popular characters, and books that are authentic Spanish texts.
