I want to give my students the ability to choose from multiple books and genres every day. There is a free to educators app called Epic that will allow this, and having the Android tablets and headphones will allow 5 students access at a time. By the end of my reading block, all of my students will have 20 minutes of reading on these tablets. I believe this will greatly improve my students reading ability, knowledge, and vocabulary. I believe they will be more engaged because of the technology aspect of it. Students can choose books from a selection of over 35,000 titles and earn awards and accomplishments. I love this app because it has titles in every ability level, subjects of interest, and genre. It also gives the option of a read-aloud for my non-readers, so it could serve as a listening center as well. I have many English language learners in my classroom and the read-aloud portion is certain to help with vocabulary development and language. I believe strongly in the importance of instilling a love for reading in children. I believe these tablets will give my students an even greater love for reading because of their ability to choose books that interest them. My goal is to help create chiildren who love to read, therefore becoming life long readers and learners.
