My Students

Give students an opportunity to experience reading through technology. Do you remember what it was like to open up your first chapter book? Now imagine if you were 7 years old and you are getting ready to read your first chapter book on a Nook!

Our school is a Title 1 school with nearly 80% of students on free lunch.

My students are in second grade and no matter what the struggles and challenges they may face there eagerness to learn always inspires me. Our school has adopted a pilot program that uses the Bank Street Model which provides the students with the opportunity to be an active member of a community not only at the school but with the surrounding community as well.

My Project

With the use of Nooks in the classroom a much larger variety of books can be used at a minimal cost. Students can use the Nook to increase fluency, use deeper thinking to improve reading comprehension, highlighting main idea and supporting details, explore other communities, research projects for our learning garden or research information on our many classroom pets, even take virtual field trips to places they may not afford to go otherwise. The options are endless!

Though a good paper back book may be fine for you and me, with all the new technology these days it is starting to feel obsolete for the youth of today.

The excitement that these Nooks will spark in my students can give me just the edge I need to grab their attention and help them become lifelong readers. Please help me do this by giving them the opportunity that most children dream of!
