My Students

Just picture being engaged in learning basic reading skills with the touch of a finger! An iPad inspires student learning because it is engaging for struggling learners.

I am an interventionist with struggling readers.

My students come from diverse backgrounds and have many needs. Technology can be a remarkable tool that help young students with reading skills. Unfortunately, many of my students do not have access to technology. The use of an iPad will allow interventions to be more interactive and enjoyable.

My Project

I am requesting one iPad to help reinforce reading skills through small group interventions. The iPad applications will help with letter and sound recognition, word families, vocabulary, and comprehension skills. The use of technology in a small group intervention classroom can be very effective and important. The iPad would develop my students' love for reading and desire for knowledge. Having access to technology at school is necessary.

An iPad will provide a much more powerful learning environment.

We really need an iPad to integrate technology and engage my struggling students. Please support my project and help my struggling learners practice their basic reading skills with technology!
