I teach fourth, fifth, and sixth grade English as a Second Language (ESL) at Truesdell Elementary School in Northwest DC. Many of my students have recently arrived in the United States and can not read in English. I want to expose my students to as much English as possible, and therefore I am requesting 16 books on tape for my students. I have a listening station, which can accommodate up to four students at once, but I only have one book on tape. The listening station is a great center activity for my lowest proficiency students. Books on tape are incredibly valuable in the ESL classroom because students can hear the English being spoken as they read along with the words. Then they can transfer this knowledge and begin writing in English themselves. I have 23 students, but I would be using the books on tape for my 11 students who have low English proficiency. To have age-appropriate books on tape in my classroom would greatly aid in my mission to teach these students English.
