Bilingual Kindergartners Reading in the 21st Century!

Help me give my students four Amazon Kindles that will help them develop their reading skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are Kindergartners in a transitional bilingual program. In our classroom we work primarily in Spanish with the goal of transitioning the students into English by the end of elementary.

My students have varying levels of language proficiency as well as academic abilities.

They are caring, considerate and hard working. They start the year with letter and number identification and by the end of the year they are reading, writing and doing addition and subtraction! It is an amazingly rewarding journey!

Our classroom is a community of mutual support towards our goal of English proficiency and academic achievement.

My Project

Our world is becoming increasingly paperless and technologically friendly. Unfortunately my school does not have the funds to provide my students with the technology to sharpen their skills reading non-print literature. Apps on the Kindle such as Epic books would give my students access to an endless electronic library in both English and Spanish. This would enhance their vocabulary in both languages and increase their interest for reading.

My young learners are best served in a small group guided reading model.

At varying levels of reading abilities, access to the Kindles allows my students to engage with literature in a meaningful way while I work one on one with my readers.
