Help me give my students $10 gift cards to Barnes and Nobles for the summer!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We are a Spanish dual-language classroom. This means that half of my students come from English speaking families, while the second half of the class comes from Spanish speaking families. In the classroom, we speak both languages. Half of the day is devoted to instruction in English, while the other half is devoted instruction in Spanish.
Not only do Spanish speaking students work in an environment where the home language is maintained, many English students are also given this wonderful opportunity to be immersed in another powerful language.
The school is considered Title I and is found in a relatively low-income neighborhood.
While these statistics are theoretically nice, one thing is for sure, we are bilingual and proud!
This year in particular, my students absolutely LOVE reading. They are so enamored by fiction and non-fiction texts. I would love to give each of them a gift card to Barnes and Nobles so that they can choose a book they love to read over the summer while still maintaining the memory of 2nd grade.
I'd also like to turn this into a field trip towards the end of the year where we go as a class to chose our books!
We have gone on many field trips as a class and I would love if this one was free of charge to them!
