Hello! I am a first year teacher trying to start up a library for my 2nd grade classroom. The school I work at is located in the south side of Chicago. Most of my students come from very low income households. They do not have the money to buy books and come from homes with very little (if any) reading material. I would like to create a tranquil reading environment in my classroom in hopes to spark the interest of my students to get them to love reading. It is crucial that they get exposed to as much reading as possible at this stage in their development. Being a first year teacher and starting from scratch I do not have the resources I need to create this library. I recently proposed to get books and bean bag chairs. In this proposal I am asking for books and cassette tapes as well as a CD/tape recorder listening center. The students will be able to listen to the books they read on audio cassette. It is a very useful tool for beginning readers. When they can hear and follow along with the book, they being to learn word recognition. This is vital to becoming a fluent reader. So, if you are looking to make a big difference in the lives of young children, this donation would do just that! Thank you!
