My students need ebooks for their classroom iPAD! These ebooks include fiction, nonfiction, history, and poetry.
Students today face many challenges in school and in their daily life. They come from difficult backgrounds, where they have little support at home, food to eat or even a place to call their own. With these challenges, they are still expected to learn to read and to become good readers.
I teach K-2nd Title 1 Reading.
This means that my students are struggling to read. I currently have 50 students that come to my room for reading support. My kindergarten students entered school knowing no letters or sounds. My first graders started this school year unable to recognize sight words in a text. My second graders were well below average and had little self esteem in reading. My students are pulled out of their regular education classroom for 45-60 min to work with me in small group. We work on letters, sounds, phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension and to build their confidence. It is my job to give my students the skills to be good readers, but also the confidence that they can do it!
My school is 70% low income. The majority of the student population is African-American, receives free or reduced lunch, and are from single parent homes. My students are technologically deprived at home due to their family's economic status.
I am requesting a set of eBooks to add to our classroom eLibrary. We currently have an iPAD that needs books! The selection of eBooks are from a variety of genres including, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and social studies. I plan to use the eBooks for student use during our small group instruction and literacy centers.
Every day I see my students struggling to read.
With each struggle, I see their confidence dwindle. These kids are 5 to 8 years old and they know that they are struggling in school. It is my job to give them every opportunity to be the best they can be. The ebooks can give my students another tool to learn to read.
