We are a Special Day Class of 15 kids in 1st and 2nd grade in what was termed a Language Enriched class. We are all about the oral and written word. The students in my class are all kids with language delays. Many are also English Language learners. To catch up to their peers they need the best and they need exposure to as much out there as possible. We need the materials to learn more than our peers everyday! Right now we don't have that. We have left over old books from others and very few of that. Although play is important and technology is the way of the future we need the printed word for the students to understand what a book really is and that it is something to explore. The students are smart. They have less and are still learning. Last year many did not talk at the start of the year. "Juan's" dad told me "I am having conversations with him. Finally! I have waited for this day since he was born." Just think where "Juan" will be if he gets the best materials possible.
