About Mr. Bailey's Multilingual Library
I am a first year ESL teacher who will be teaching at Kingsbury Middle school with 6th grade beginners. For my project, I am looking to create a classroom library where students have access to books in their first language. Books will be provided in multiple languages that represent my student demographics (Spanish & Arabic). My mentor was generous enough to donate her current classroom library which contains a handful of Spanish Edition texts; however, my project is to further expand this collection as well as add Arabic editions to the collection. Texts in other languages, specifically Arabic, are often difficult to come by and are priced up due to the translation. Titles include popular texts such as "Harry Potter", "Hunger Games", "I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter", and "The Hate You Give". The selected books which I have saved in my Amazon Wish List also include titles at various levels. These books include titles such as "Diary of a Wimpy Kid", "Captain Underpants", and "The Wrinkle in Time". Titles also include cultural authentic texts such as "Me Llamo, Maria Isabel" and "Tales from the Thousand and One Nights".
