I am a Kindergarten bilingual teacher in Sawyer School. The students here are of low socioeconomic status. 98% are minority. Our classroom library is very small. Many of the students here do not have books at home. The only place they can interact with books is here in the classroom library. Many do not have a library card. The books we have are in bad condition. At this point many are beginning to read. I would like to be able to provide them with bilingual books that they can read as well as enjoy. They truly get excited when they get a hold of books in their own language. They immediately point out the sight words we work on. Providing them with a classroom library filled with books will amaze them and will help them on their literacy journey as my little marching readers :)
