My students need theses 12 book selections with accompanying CDs, including the Chinese folktale "Tikki Tikki Tembo", and the hilarious "Skippyjon Jones".
Books are the foundation of education. We all know this. It is a sad fact that students in America do not have adequate access to them. The more exposure children have to quality literature, the richer their lives will be. This is obvious. Your help will be an invaluable gift.
I am a first grade teacher in California.
Approximately 60 percent of the students at our school are African-American, about 30 percent are Latino, and the remaining 10 percent are a mix of Pakistani, Ethiopian, Anglo-American and others. The vast majority of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. My class this year is comprised mostly of English language learners. I always have many talented children in my classes, and I am always looking to expand the educational program I deliver.
I am, of course, strong believer in the public education. The reality, however, is that public schools are typically not organized well enough to give students the materials they need. Children should be read at least one book a day - don't you think? At least. In our school district there are 180 instructional days. The books I have received (over ten years) from the district for use in my classroom amount to only a small fraction of what is needed. The books selected for this project are all audio books with accompanying text. These are books that are produced by professional media companies using professional actors and musicians. They are a valuable supplement to the literacy curriculum and kids love them, especially English language learners. Students who are learning English gain greatly from listening to books on CD because they can return to them again and again, gleaning greater understanding of the text as they listen and read along.
Each title in this selection of books is outstanding.
All are books that our children ought to have access to in school. Give these children the gift of reading! Your generosity will be greatly appreciated. Rest assured, this donation will make a real difference.Read More
