Where my request ties-in with the compassionate, hardworking, and independent students in my room is I would like an opportunity to implement real-world applications with them! In the real world, most of these students have some aspect of technology at home: a cell phone, an iPad, video gaming system, etc, but less than 3 of them have a Kindle or a device with an e-reader application on it. Why?! Because most gaming apps are free and books cost money! Research has proven that reading just even 10 more minutes a day could change a child’s academic life. Kids are most likely to finish books they pick out and pace themselves through reading. So what I am proposing is an opportunity to put real-life reading in their hands. Finish early on Friday with your self-paced work? Que up a book on the Kindle and kick your feet up- ENJOY the process of working hard and enjoying a book. When I am trying to motivate a struggling reader to enjoy a text- I can grab the audiobook file for a story them might be interested in. I’ll keep a set of headphones handy and let them listen along to a story! Think they’ll be excited!? Absolutely! Once students and parents see what is possible for reading with these devices, then I can see students requesting e-readers and e-books, not just video game consoles for gifts! Not only will students now be interested in choosing a book to read, but they will be doing so in a real-world application. In addition, students will be choosing the texts that I am purchasing- texts that are relevant to them-which makes all the difference! Once I buy texts, I am able to keep them and students can continue to read and enjoy them!
