I gotta plug the International Book Project. I’ve been working on a English Resource Room for my school, and I sent in a request to get books from the IBP. A few months later, we got 79 great kids-books in English. They vary from books for beginning readers to teen novels. Most of them seem are going to be too tough for a lot of the kids, but more important than having these kids understand everything in the books is that it gets them excited about learning English.
We’re set up a small English library for the kids to check books out so they can take them home and read them at their leisure.
Part of the requirement for the IBP is that we write thank you letters and submit pictures so that they can promote their organization and continue to receive funding from donors.
Here are a few pics I took of the 7th grade kids getting their books
