English-Spanish Dictionaries for Third Grade Bilingual Classes

The cost of 30 copies of the Vox Compact Spanish and English Dictionary from Barnes & Noble is $340, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

This proposal is to have 30 Vox Compact Spanish and English Dictionary books for my third grade students. Our school does a magnificent job of having books available for our students in school. However, we would not have enough funds to be able to provide these books for the students to take home. I teach at a Title 1 school (90% or more receive free or reduced lunch) and these books will have an immediate impact on the lives of our students. Most of the parents want to help our students with their homework, but this is impossible as very few of them are able to read English. These books would help us to break these barriers and enable our students to receive the help they so desperately need. These books would be returned at the end of the year and we could reuse them each year. Again thank you for reading this and I hope you would consider us if you choose a proposal.
