An Apple a Day Helps the Reader Stay!

Help me give my students an Apple laptop. With your help, they will be able to use the laptop to access an engaging digital library of books. As they have fun, they will improve their reading.

My Students

I am a 5th grade teacher in Miami, Florida. I teach a diverse group of students with a wide variety of learning styles and abilities. While this can be challenging at times, it also is very rewarding to see how much improvement they make from week to week.

I have learned that we, as teachers, need to adapt to our students' learning styles in order to achieve success.

This can be possible through the wide resources available on the Internet.

My Project

My students need motivation in order to help them get excited about reading. I know that access to a computer with reading games and apps will be just the fix. I have seen how excited they get to play these games when they have had the opportunity in the past. I can also find apps and games that will be specific to my students' learning needs.

I need to differentiate instruction, and I can do that through a variety of games and websites that are available through the internet.

With your help, it can be done. Technology is the best way to access resources, provide opportunities for research, and create meaningful presentations that are not possible at this time.
