Escritores Excelentes; Spanish Language Literacy Project

My students need dry-erase markers and towels for erasing. I like to have an interactive classroom and I have dry-erase sheets for every student but not markers!

My Students

"If you don't use it, you lose it." My students' parents often tell me that they wish they had practiced Spanish more because they don't remember what they once learned as kids. I don't want my students to forget what they learn so I try to give them as much practice as possible with the language.

My students are an outstanding and diverse group of middle school kids.

Our school is a K-8 in an urban setting. My students are in their first years of Spanish study and I want to set them up for success in high school and beyond. Currently, some are very enthusiastic about their foreign language studies (which I'd love to keep that way) and others are a little nervous (a feeling I'd like to help them conquer). Our school, like many others, emphasizes encouraging students to become excellent readers and writers. As a Spanish teacher, I think it is important to emphasize those skills in the foreign language of study too.

My Project

In order to support students' literacy skills and to keep student participation high, we need dry-erase markers to use with the dry-erase sheets I already have. We do countless exercises in the classroom from memory games to translation challenges and more. Unfortunately, markers are a resource that require constant replenishment and with budgets the way they are, the school can't afford to provide my students with this resource.

A donation to this project will allow students to put down the textbook and engage in lessons actively.

It will allow them to not only practice their oral language skills but also those written language skills that are often so hard to master without adequate practice. I love the Spanish language and I want to grow this enthusiasm in my students--your donation will support this goal!
