It is very important to me to build a classroom culture that values my students culture and heritage as well as their worthiness to an equitable education. I believe that by having new books with stories and characters my students can relate to, as well as values their culture and heritage will make an impact on their interest and willingness to read. I would love to create an environment that fosters a love for reading for my ELL students, by creating a diverse classroom library with books that acknowledge and celebrate their diversity, culture and heritage. It is proven that reading has a big impact on students language development. Reading books with children helps develop their language skills by: Increasing their exposure to language. Stories that rhyme are very helpful for teaching speech and language skills and can help children discover a love of language.Engaging children's imaginations, stimulating imaginative play (a primary way children learn about the world), and introducing children to things and places they may not have a chance to learn about otherwise, such as oceans or dinosaurs. Helping children work out their feelings about the world. Many children's books are on topics that can open up valuable discussions between a parent and child, such as books about sibling rivalry, nightmares, or dealing with difficult emotions.
