Evening the Playing Field Making Books Accessible to All Students
My students need Kindle paper-white e-readers so we can adjust the settings and make the books they really want to read more accessible. The gift card would allow us to purchase books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am a reading specialist serving fifth and sixth-grade students. My students come from many different backgrounds but share one thing in common; they all struggle with reading. I specialize in working with dyslexic students and many of my students are still learning English. I see on a daily basis how hard they work
My students are amazing and work harder then you can imagine to improve their reading skills.
Even though they struggle they love a good story. I want to provide them with kindle paper-white e-readers.
The Kindle paper-whites will ease the burden some students feel when trying to read. They have back lighting that makes it easier on the eyes and therefore will increase reading stamina. The settings can be adjusted to increase the white space and there are many different fonts to choose from. There is also a font specifically for dyslexic students that will ease the struggle of word identification. When encountering unfamiliar words the students can click on the word and the definition will pop up.
The materials requested will help improve the reading experiences of my struggling readers and allow them to access the same grade books their classmates are reading.
They work so hard I want to even the playing field by providing kindles to make reading more enjoyable.
