Our students are second language learners. Their parents want desperately to help them with school, but the language barrier presented makes it challenging for them to read- aloud in the academic language found at school. While they can continue reading to them in their first language, we hope to be able to allow families to borrow CD players, so that they can also listen to English read-along books. We previously purchased several books on CD that have been sitting unused in our classroom, because the portable CD players we have from the past require far too many frequent changes of batteries to function. According to the website Reading Rockets, "Reading aloud is one of the most important things parents and teachers can do with children. Reading aloud builds many important foundational skills, introduces vocabulary, provides a model of fluent, expressive reading, and helps children recognize what reading for pleasure is all about." Because many of our students are not only English Language Learners, but also from a low SES background, they do not even have access to internet that would connect them to read-alouds more easily. Thus, we would like to provide them with this opportunity to use more basic technology in order to expand their vocabulary and love for reading at home.
