"Awe, Miss...", said Jerome with a sigh and a groan. "Do I really have to read all these pages?" Like most of my students living in our impoverished bilingual neighborhood, they are struggling readers that are reading well below grade level. I teach, teach, teach but if a child does not enjoy reading they may never read outside of the school day. I know that allowing my small groups access to a Kindle Fire will allow students the opportunity to read daily at their level and speed; one page at a time while not being overwhelmed with an entire text. In addition, they will get to explore unknown vocabulary, take notes and highlight at the touch of a button. I want to nourish all my students the opportunity to find their reading niche and enjoy reading daily. I know access to a Kindle Fire will allow me to plant the seed to becoming life long lovers of reading!!!
