Mrs. Ellefson B from Seattle WA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Play It!

My students need a listening center where they can play their favorites audiobooks and read along stories. The boom box will be used and shared in small groups and with the whole classroom.

My Students

My third grade students are a positive and happy group of children that find in school a safe place, where learning is fun and multiculturality is embrace. My students are motivated and diligent learners that are instructed in two languages as a part of our immersion Spanish program.

Their great diversity and cultural richness make them an extraordinary group of multilingual learners.

Their unlimited potential always encourages me to provide the best academic experience and fulfill their desires to learn.

My Project

In our dual language school, the students in third grade continue developing their Spanish skills.

Your donation to this project will help us create and incorporate a listening center in the classroom where the students can play and listen to folktales and stories from around the world.

Listening while the students read along every page will enhance their vocabulary and help them to become fluent readers in Spanish.

I will be creating a special space in the classroom with books and CDs my students can access at any time during our reading workshop. My students will benefit with the pronunciation of the words and practice the language with their favorites stories and songs.
