English Language Learners
What HAPPY Reading Has for Me

We hope you’ll explore everything.

HAPPY Reading does NOT have learning materials in languages other than English, but can point out the following:

1) We regularly recommend multicultural and bilingual books among our recommended read-alouds. Access these at: www.happyreading.org/Books.htm

2) Coming in 2012, we’ll offer a special grouping of poems called Ice Breakers. These serve as a sort of bridge for those who don’t have English as a first language, especially if these learners or their families are new to America.

For general support for ELL, the same high-quality, best practices for literacy instruction and learning engagement apply for virtually all learners. And best practices are improved when the instruction is also sensitive to the needs, interests and background of the learner. Caring and creativity go far in making all types of learners feel comfortable and ready to learn.

Becoming a registered member costs just pennies a day, per student. Some people spend more than this amount on questionable fashion accessories, which we’re sure you’d never do. You can purchase up to three years of membership at the low, introductory price. Schools and divisions may also purchase for up to three years at this same per-license rate. And referring friends, colleagues, other schools or other divisions can lead to even greater benefits for you and for them.
