I teach kindergarten in an inner city school. I work with 55 students daily. The majority of students in the school receive free meals. Many of my students come to school with little or no readiness skills for kindergarten. The majority of my students are second language learners. For many of my students this is their first experience away from their parents and family. Most of my students' parents speak little or no English therefore I try to provide a fun and engaging way for them to learn English. They need practice hearing and speaking the English language. I would like the Kindergarten Decodable Classroom Library from Leap Frog. This library includes level 1 and 2 interactive books which provide instruction in short vowels, consonant blends and qu and ck patterns, and 6 LeapPad PLTs with headphones. This series is an interactive decodable library which would provide my students with the practice they need in hearing and speaking the English language. This library would engage my students with lively stories that would help them learn letter-name recognition, letter-sound correspondence, sight word development, vocabulary development word blending, reading fluency and phonics. My students would receive immediate and corrective feedback in a a warm and non-threatening environment. They would be having fun and learning at the same time. A combination that certainly is a win-win situation. My students would be able to work independently with this library giving me time to work one-on-one with other students.
