Ms. Flores from San Diego CA is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Inclusive Multicultural and Multilanguage Classrooom Library

Help me give my students access to books with characters that reflect their own cultures and heritage. It is important for our students to be able to see themselves represented in the books in my classroom.

My Students

Our elementary is made up of students from around the world. Many of them are refugees and recent immigrants. For these kids, school and education is seen as a stepping stool to a successful future or their "American Dream.” Our school is located in the inner city area in San Diego.

My students are in 4th grade in the Dual Immersion program.

They are learning content in both English and in Spanish. Thus, many of my students are bilingual, but some are multilingual, meaning that Spanish is the third language they speak. My students are eager to learn, and have a hunger to improve their understanding in any given content.

My Project

As mentioned, our school helps students from all over the globe. Many of them are refugees and recent immigrants. For these kids, school and education is seen as a stepping stool to a successful future or their "American Dream.” My students are bilingual, but some are multilingual, meaning that Spanish is the third language they speak.

These books will serve my literacy blocks: read aloud, shared reading, writing prompts, etc.

This will be used for distance learning, but will be used in person in some future. It is important that students see themselves represented in any type of media. School books are a great venue for children to see their heritage reflected by having characters that are their race, speak their language, and/or incorporate their culture.
