I Know the Arabic Word, but What About English?

My students need Arabic to English picture dictionaries to encourage them to use new English words in their writing and their conversations.

My Students

We are a Title I school in downtown Brooklyn serving recently arrived immigrant students who live in all parts of the city. They have come to Brooklyn from every part of the world -- Mexico, Senegal, Yemen, El Salvador, Haiti, Guinea, Bangladesh, China to name just a few. Our students speak a multitude of native languages -- Spanish, Arabic, Bangla, Mandarin, Creole, French, Fulani ,etc.

Working collaboratively, our students learn English and their other academic subjects; but they also learn about each other's cultures, languages, countries and religions.

They are all English Language Learners (ELLs) here in the United States to expand their educational opportunities.

My Project

Imagine trying to describe how you felt the first time you saw the Statue of Liberty or trying to describe how marshmallows feel and taste. Now try explaining these things in a language you are just beginning to learn! This is a challenge my students experience each day.

An Arabic to English picture dictionary will help our 9th and 10th grade Arabic English language learners find the words to share their stories.

The photos and formatting of these dictionaries will help students to be more specific as they begin writing and memorizing original stories about community inspired by the oral storytelling traditions of Native American tribes from across the United States.
