Mrs. Solorzano from Fresno CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Have to Listen to Learn!

My students need sets of Spanish read along books with cd's. This will allow them to read along and listen to the book to help them build their vocabulary.

My Students

Every student who will be in my classroom, love to learn! They embarked on an incredible journey last year as kinder students, when they started the dual immersion program. Becoming bilingual and bi-literate is a truly amazing process that these students are able to take part in and use it for a lifetime! Their courage and enthusiasm inspired me to reach out and ask for materials in order to provide them with the necessary tools to reach their academic potential. I will be so lucky to have them in my classroom when the school year starts again in August 2018.

My Project

In a dual immersion program, students learn visually as well as by hearing things said multiple times. With this project, I want to create a listening center for my students, where they will be able to read along and hear how words are being pronounced properly. I believe this will help my students expand their vocabulary knowledge in the Spanish language. Items selected through the Lakeshore website, are bundles and sets of books that will allow me to create a listening center for students in my class. By having the opportunity to create a listening center, students will be able to hear the book and read along.
