iPads for Launching Literacy Levels

My students need iPads so they can work independently on their literacy skills. This would allow me to instruct smaller groups of students in need of high support with reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Determined, courageous, inspirational, and hardworking are great describers for my students. My students love books and technology as their modality to access literature in order to advance their literacy development.

My students are amazingly resilient, joyful children who diligently strive to improve their reading ability.

My students fall into the intensive support category signifying their need to receive small group instruction from myself, the Title I reading specialist. My students arrive at the reading table ready to try their best to become better readers.

My Project

iPads will allow my students to increase their literacy levels by accessing intervention programs that will assist them in their quest to advance their reading to grade level. Having iPads will allow me to implement a blended learning approach to my reading instruction for my students performing well below grade level in reading.

iPads will launch a blended learning program that will give my intensive students an opportunity to rocket their reading abilities to reach grade level performance.

As the reading specialist, I conduct intensive reading instruction in ten classrooms in grades K-2 servicing 60 students. With three iPads, I could bring the iPads with me to the ten classrooms and break my remedial group of six students into two groups of three students. This would allow me to work with three students while my other three students use the iPads to access intervention programs for their reading skills, and then we would switch modality of instruction for the second part of the class. This would allow more focused interaction with my students and a most productive use of instructional time.

Since I travel from class to class to service the students with intense reading difficulties, the iPads would assist 60 students to develop their reading skills daily. Thank you so much for considering this venture.
