Ms. Buck from East Boston MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Spanish Books for our Classroom Library

My students need a variety of both fiction and nonfiction Spanish books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are wonderful, energetic, eager third graders. The majority of them live in the same neighborhood of Boston as they attend school, which allows for an involved parent population. Many of the families speak spanish as a first language or are bilingual in both spanish and english. To foster and support bilingualism, the school has a dual-language program. My students have been learning in english and spanish since kindergarten. Due to this program they not only speak both languages, but are literate in both as well!

My Project

My students are part of a dual-language program at our school. I would love to have a rich Spanish language library with books to capture their interest and make them excited to read. They will use these books for independent reading. Having a variety of genres from which to choose will ensure that each child finds their literary best friend and explore new worlds.

The Magic Treehouse and Judy Moody series are particular favorites of third graders.

They also love any and all animal books. The nonfiction collection provides a plethora of books on animals, including insects, sea creatures, and deadly predators.
