I am a Kindergarten teacher in a rural PK-5 school in North Carolina. Approximately 83% of our student population receives free or reduced lunch and approximately 51% of our total population is Hispanic. Each year I struggle to bring these children up to our state reading level standards because many of them, Hispanic and Non-Hispanic, lack basic letter knowledge. Their families do not have the resources to give them the foundation in literacy that they deserve. I am requesting funding for a Spanish/English Leap Frog Program. It is a multi-sensory, technology integrated approach to learning the alphabet and phonetic uses of letters. This program leads the children from simple letter recognition and knowledge into reading simple books on their own. This program would highly motivate low achievers to \"want\" to engage in the learning process and encourage high achievers to \"rocket into reading\". This program consists of a Leap Pad Personal Learning Tool w/headphones, a Leap Desk in English and Spanish, a Leap Mat Learning Surface, Interactive Leap Pad books in both English and Spanish, take-home family involvement backpacks and many other wonderfully useful tools for teaching and learning. I am sure that the children in my classroom would greatly benefit from these learning aids both now and in the future.
