I am the luckiest teacher in the world because I get to spend each day with enthusiastic, little learners who are eager. They love to learn and find answers to questions. I work with many students who are English language learners and students with special needs, but they are the hardest workers I know! My students need a comfortable environment so they feel at ease and confident each day and ready to learn. Many students do not have many books at home. They need classroom books that are engaging to foster a love of learning. These students usually have farther to go but reach goals because of their effort.
My class and school has a high population of Spanish speaking families. In fact, Hispanic students are our highest population. Often, parents tell me they cannot read the books I send home with their child because they only read Spanish. These read alouds, alphabet books, and emergent readers will help my students be able to read with their families. Students will also hear reading at home, which is crucial to their literacy development. Students need to be read to or read for at least 20 minutes a day. By having both Spanish read alouds and emergent readers, my students will get both.
