Help Make Reading Fun!
My students need an Apple iPad for small group literacy work and 2 protective cases, one for the new iPad and one for an iPad previously purchased.
Do you remember those boring days of reading aloud and and answering questions from a textbook? Do you remember how fun it was? Yeah, me neither. My students come to life when given fun hands-on learning opportunities. Help me make this possible with a tablet computer.
I am a Title 1 Reading Specialist in Moore Public School district (yes, the heart of tornado alley).
We are a high poverty school. I work with K-6 grade students who are struggling with reading. Many of these students do not learn the traditional textbook and pencil way. We desperately need new and innovative ways to capture their attention and bring learning to life for them.
I recently was funded for an Apple iPad for my classroom. I would love the opportunity to provide a second iPad for small group work. This would give my students an opportunity to use thousands of reading/literacy apps for hands-on learning. I would use the tablet computer during small groups. With the younger students, we would download apps for alphabet knowledge, phonics, and handwriting. The older students would benefit from apps for comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. The possibilities are endless with a tablet. It can be used for research on the fly or short videos to demonstrate a new concept. It truly puts learning in the hands of my students. I am also requesting 2 sturdy cases for these iPads.
Many of the students in my class are from low income households.
They may not have the opportunity to use technology outside the classroom. This tablet would provide a hands-on approach to learning that will be new and exciting to many of my students. It will open up so many opportunities for learning for our classroom.
