Spanish Beginners Need Dictionaries

My students need a class set of Spanish dictionaries so they can effectively research words for assignments and projects to become proficient in Spanish.

My Students

My students spend most of the day working on projects or doing activities that develop their skills in Spanish while collaborating with other students. The biggest challenge that they face is not having enough Spanish dictionaries to be able to look up words that they need.

I teach students in grades kindergarten to sixth grade.

They are highly motivated students who love learning Spanish through projects and activities rather than lecture or busy work. My school is a suburban school with students from all different backgrounds.

My Project

By receiving a class set of Spanish dictionaries, my students will be able to complete assignments and look up words they want to know without having to share with 5-6 other students. They will be able to spend more time learning the language and less time waiting for a dictionary.

My students have been learning Spanish for years, but they have not been able to reach their full potential because they do not have the resources that they need to learn the new vocabulary that they are interested in and that relates to their lives.
