How can young English Learners have the literacy experiences necessary to help them succeed in the 21st century classroom? Through a Kindle Fire initiative at our school, we were able to provide students with a customized audiobook library for at-home reading with families. Peer tutors in our building created these audio files in English, which paired with a variety of bilingual books across grade levels and various genres. These books were checked out through our library and taken home where parents could read along and learn English with their students throughout the week. Our students were able to experience great success in their language proficiency,enjoy the benefits of boosted self-esteem and confidence, and spend quality time with their families each week. We are so excited to continue to address this equity concern in our student population and share what we have learned in the hopes that your building can experience the same successes!
