I am a first grade teacher in a very low income area. Most of my students do not speak English and many families do not own cars. My school is quite a distance from the public library, so therefore most of my students do not go to the library. I really need to motivate my students to learn to speak and read in English. A great way to achieve this goal is to have an interesting classroom library. Currently, we have a few books, most of which have been donated (second-hand)and some that I have purchased. We really need popular books that the kids will be excited about reading such as titles by Jonathon London, Mercer Mayer and Robert Munsch. If we had such books I know the students would be driven to learn because they would love to read these books. I would like to purchase some of these books for our classroom library. The 20 students in my class would read these books for approximately one hour a day while I work with small groups. The students would be so excited about reading if this great reading material was available to them.
