Mrs. Parah from Cottage Grove MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kids Need To Flip Book Pages, Not iPad Pages!

My students need listening books at their listening center! With everyone going to books on iPads I still want my kids to be able to handle books and be able to flip through the pages!

My Students

I teach very energetic 5 and 6 year olds who are excited to start Kindergarten! Before Kindergarten starts I always ask them what the number one thing they want to learn is, and they always say: Learning How to Read!

They love to make new friends, learn how to share, have unless excitement to learn new things and I love to watch them grow as learners both socially and academically.

They are always excited about a new book to read!

My Project

My kids will be able to have a book in their hand, while being read to at the same time!

I love that technology is growing but I still want my students to be able to have actual books in their hands instead of always relying on the book to be viewed from a IPAD.

They need to learn how a book works, instead of flipping a screen to view a book!

I currently have no books on CD in my room and reply heavily on the iPad for students to read along with a book. How great would it be if I could give them books in their hands instead of a book on a iPad!
