Curling Up With A Nook!

My Students

Students with significant special needs are engaging in literature through technology!

My classroom is made up of students with significant cognitive and/or physical disabilities.

They love being kids and interacting with the world around them to the best of their abilities. They want to be included and treated just like their peers.

My Project

Technology has become the spark that ignites student learning. There was nothing more I loved as a child than curling up with a good book to read during quiet time. Today children have access to thousands of pieces of literature at their fingertips. Our school has received a grant to give 1-2 Nook Colors to each classroom. I am writing to receive another Nook for my students to share their love of reading!

Reading is the fundamental tool to access our world.

If students do not know how to read or enjoy reading, how can they learn about the world we live in? Giving students materials and access to literature would be an amazing gift for them.
