Ms. de Gennaro’s Classroom Edit display name

At our school, we have 1st - 5th graders working on a computer reading program called Headsprout. This program has two components: reading fluency and reading comprehensions. Students spend 25 minutes per day completing episodes aligned with each student's individual needs. When they complete an episode, they read a short story to an adult. They earn prizes and stickers after each episode. Chromebooks will be an upgrade from our 14 year old computer lab. I chose the Levono ThinkPad 11e Chromebooks because we have some of these Chromebooks at our school already. They will be added to a laptop cart that we already have at our school. Each computer needs a Google Education license so multiple students will be able to have accounts and use the Chromebooks. I chose the treasure box prizes because they were small toys to give to the kids that they would enjoy playing with and celebrating their success on the Headsprout episodes. Thank you for helping my project!!
