Mrs. Elizondo from Austin TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Opening The World Through Bilingual Books

Help me give my students the resources needed for them to enjoy reading! It is difficult to find rich Spanish books that my bilingual students can relate to. I am requesting books my students have requested. Thank you!

My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching wonderful bilingual students who are learning both Spanish and English (Dual language program). I work with students who are immigrants from Mexico, Honduras, San Salvador, or Guatemala, as well as students who were born in the United States.

Most of my students come with limited educational opportunities.

They enjoy reading and being part of a learning community. Given the opportunity, all of my students can strive to be the best learner they can be.

My Project

We are a community of readers who are in need of bilingual books that my students are interested in. During Independent reading time, my students are allowed to choose books that interests them to read. Our classroom library is in need of bilingual books so that my students can continue to grow as culturally diverse readers.

These books will help my students identify themselves as readers!

Many of the books I selected are special requests from them. It is important for my students to use reading as a tool to understand and connect to the real world and how it impacts the world around them.
