Every day these kindergarten students start with eating breakfast in the classroom. We then have our math lesson, Language Arts, and end the day with science. For the majority of my students, English is their second language. They love to listen to their home language represented during the school day.
This school is a Title I school.
Many students come from disadvantaged homes. The classroom consists of multinational and multilingual students. They love to learn and get very excited when they discover new things.
The majority of my students speak another language at home. Of my English Language Learners, most of them speak Spanish at home. I already have a couple of Read Along books in Spanish, and my students love to listen to a book read to them in their home language. I try to read picture books to my students in Spanish, but I get more giggles than listening due to my poor pronunciation.
I would like to obtain more Read Along books in Spanish to expand my classroom library.
My students who speak English at home also like to listen to the books in Spanish. They want to try and learn Spanish so they can communicate with their friends.
