My Students

My students are hard-working, creative, innovative, and curious to learn new things each day, in two languages! They are bilingual, and are motivated to explore both languages through literature. Reading, writing, speaking, and listening each day together in class, in both Spanish and English, are monumental tasks. Their communication skills are improving exponentially each week. They need a comfortable, affordable space in order to do this. They also need areas where they can find the books they love, and explore them in a safe and confident manner. By purchasing larger, sturdy bookshelves, our classroom can hold more books for kids to love and read, and make it easier for them to access them as well.

My Project

This year we are faced with a blessing and a challenge. Due to many generous donations by families in our district, and the accumulation of books in the classroom library, the shelves are filled! More than that- some have buckled and broken from too much weight of books, others are crammed so tight with books that students cannot see which books to pull out, and other books are bent by being pushed in overcrowded areas. We want students to love the books, and we want to continue to love the books for years to come with more students, so we are asking for more bookshelves to allow for easy access to allow students to all books, and to give them the maximum amount of time to enjoy them!
