Give Students a Head Start

The importance of first language literacy

Studies have shown that fluency in a second language is nearly hopeless without full literacy in the learner’s first language – the language children speak at home with their families. One of the challenges of teaching Amharic in Ethiopian schools has always been a lack of reading materials for young readers. Without books in Amharic, the young student does not have a clear motivation to read or the rewards and feeling of accomplishment one gets from completing a book. A lack of materials in the mother tongue creates an impression that your own voice is not valuable. To solve this problem, Whiz Kids has developed a Classroom Library Kit containing fun storybooks and other materials designed to make learning how to read easy and fun.

Includes all of the following learning materials:

  • 32 Fidel storybooks, each focusing on different family of Amharic letters
