I would like to begin with a most sincere thanks. Simply taking the time to read this shows your concern with the state of today's educational environment. I am a first grade teacher in a diverse kindergarten through fifth grade elementary school. Over thirty-five percent of my students participate in the free and reduced lunch program. Many of the first grade students I work with are not read to at home because their parents do not feel comfortable reading to their children, because of language barriers, or because of extensive work schedules needed to cover the high cost of living in the bay area. Since reading is not modeled in many of my students' homes, many of my students are not exposed to books, rich literary language, and literary discussions. I utilize a variety of instructional strategies to build not only vocabulary, beginning reading skills, and comprehension, but also a life long love of reading. One of the instructional strategies I utilize is books on tape. Through this activity, students get to listen to and follow along as a story is played on a tape. This brings exciting tales to life, builds fluency, and develops comprehension as students respond to the stories with pictures and sentences depicting their favorite parts. I am hoping to acquire a set of five multicultural books on tape. These would be a wonderful addition to our classroom as they would reflect the students and their cultures while also fostering a love of reading.
