My English Learners Need Audio CD and Guided Reading Books
Help me give my students their guided reading books as well as audio CD books at their reading levels. These books are specifically organized into sets that are suitable to my students' different ELD (English Language Development) levels.
My first graders are English language learners who recently moved to the United States from Mainland China. Having to adapt to speak a foreign language and live in a foreign culture, these youngsters must make a tremendous effort to adjust to a completely new and unfamiliar learning environment.
As eager learners, they share a common desire to bring forth their curiosity and perseverance in hardship to the classroom.
Each of my students represents a unique personality, yet shares the same goal in learning. These students do not give up easily despite the challenges they must face every day. They strive for success as they share the same enthusiasm to achieve academically. They understand clearly that they must work hard in order to succeed.
My library of teacher-read-aloud books is fully organized by topics, genres, as well as students' reading levels. The books must attract students' attention and stimulate their understanding and comprehension. My English Learners particularly like reading and listening to audio books with CD.
My students are fully engaged with the characters and are learning to make inferential connections with the stories while being read aloud to.
They also enjoy reading at a deeper level in their own literacy groups. While being assigned to a guided reading literacy group, my students are well instructed in literacy discussions with teacher support. The guided reading books must be chosen to specifically fit each student group's reading level. If this project is fully funded, my students will benefit from a variety of guided reading and audio books selected and their reading fluency and comprehension will continue to grow.
