Ms. Boike from Loveland CO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading en Español! (FVR Books)

Help me give my students the gift of reading! We are looking for a variety of new books to help expand our Spanish classroom library! I have a variety of levels from beginners to heritage/native Spanish speakers.

My Students

My Spanish 2 & 4/5 classrooms are a place of challenge & discovery. Students spend the year learning how to communicate effectively in Spanish and about all of the different customs and cultures that encompass the language.

My students come from all different cultures and backgrounds and my classroom is a place where they can all work together and create something awesome, despite the differences in their lives.

They work together every single day. Collaboration is key in a world language classroom.

My Project

In order to personalize learning and expand their Spanish abilities, my classes have started "Free Voluntary Reading" (FVR) this year! At least once a week, my students select a book, sit down, and travel to a different world by reading in Spanish! From level 2 all the way up to level 5, my students LOVE the time that they get to spend reading!

I am in dire need of more challenging books for my native and heritage Spanish-speakers.

Many of the books that I already have are targeted towards students who are learning Spanish as their second language, not for students who already have very high levels of proficiency in Spanish. Heritage and Native Spanish-speakers deserve a place in our schools where they can truly be themselves and connect to their cultures and identities. By reading, students can travel to distant places or even read about people who are going through the same struggles that they are facing in their daily lives.

Students who have the chance to make a connection to a book find reading fun and begin to read more for enjoyment! Helping students begin to learn that reading is fun is the perfect way to build better readers and literacy skills. My students will love getting their hands on these new books!
