Maya Angelou once said "any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him". But what happens when children don't have access to adequate books in their native language?
My students are English Language Learners who hail from a high poverty and high crime neighborhood.
They are eager to learn and love literature but their resources are extremely limited. Students must rely on classroom libraries since the public library in the area closed years ago, leaving families wondering when it would reopen. Since our students rely on us for essential resources, it is imperative to make them available in our classroom.
I want my students to use the Spanish and English books as a way to escape their surroundings, but that has become a problem since we do not have enough books in their native language. Furthermore, the books that our library currently has are far too simple to challenge students anymore and they become easily bored with our selection. Students will be able to use these books during independent reading time in order to expand their horizons. They will also be able to take them home in order to involve their parents as they embark on their journeys as readers.
I wish I could supply my students with all the resources they need to be successful but, since that is not feasible, I do the best I can to equip them with a solid foundation for what is to come.
With your help, I can introduce resources that will help my students become successful individuals despite the odds against them.Read More
