I am a third grade monolingual teacher at a hard-working school in Washington Heights, where 97% of our students eligible for free lunch. As a lover of books, I always try to instill this in my students. I purchase many books for them all year, and now with the Mayor's Initiative, our classroom has many books for the children to read in class and borrow to take home. We also visit the library. However, in speaking to the children, I realized most had never purchased a book of their own. Imagine never having the experience of walking amongst the shelves of a bookstore, browsing through books that were new, choosing your favorite to keep forever! I would love to give them this memory. A $10.00 gift card for each child, to be used on a class trip to the bookstore, would be invaluable memory and a shopping experience. We would even be able to include this as a Mathematics lesson on using money. The best way to encourage children to read would be to instill the joy of books. This experience will enrich this joy, as well as open their eyes to the world of books across all genres.
