Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am a bilingual first-grade teacher with wonderful students who are taking off in their reading. To augment our currently sparse lending library, my students would benefit from sets of Spanish language picture books. So I am requesting a library of books in Spanish for my students.
They are starting to identify as readers and enjoy reading very much. My students are low income and do not have access to many books through their families. Oakland has proposed to build a library close to our school, but currently the closest library is too far away for most families.
Unfortunately, it is hard for my students to find enough good reading material. Spanish language materials are not as abundant as English ones and my advanced students have already read the few paper back picture books I have for them to borrow. I want to make sure that their current enthusiasm for reading does not turn to boredom with too few books available.
My 20 students this year would benefit from being able to borrow books to read at home. But the benefit is not limited to this year's students! Each year more students will benefit from the use of these materials.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
