Kearny has a large percentage of spanish speaking children entering Kindergarten. National Geographic has designed this curriculum to help Kindergarteners learn to speak and read. The library includes of a series of 10 patterned storybooks and a picture word book that students use like a dictionary. Written in everyday language, students will have a chance to directly apply what these books are teaching them to their life at school and home.
These interactions will allow them to recognize the relevance of the books and will positively reinforce their appreciation of the learning process. These leveled readers mentioned above go along with our newly adopted ESL program for our English Language Learners (ELL). They are leveled readers and will be used at the students’ instructional reading level in English during guided reading groups in order to meet the reading level needs for our ELL students.
