Fired Up About Reading!

My students need Kindles and a place to comfortably use them.

My Students

"Will you read me this book?" That is the most commonly asked question in my kindergarten classroom. The sad thing is, I don't have enough time in the day to read every book that each kid wants to hear. My students are excited about learning to read. They love looking at and listening to books. Library day is a sacred thing. That is not common among low income communities. Many of my students are just starting to read, but have interest in much wordier texts. I would like to see their literacy dreams fulfilled.

My Project

We use technology more and more in our daily lives. These Kindles would be used for game based literacy and listening to books. Starfall and Epic books are two examples of applications my students will have access to. Through these portals they can engage in fun and meaningful literacy practice. The tile floors in our class don't allow us to sit together in a group for literacy activities. When students have a special gathering spot it gives them a sense of warmth and engages them in the activities. The carpet I am requesting is a great way to let the kids gather together and learn.
