Kindergarteners as Readers

The cost of 5 Leap Pads from Nasco is $372, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

As kindergarteners step into school on the first day they are filled with energy and excitement for what they will learn. For many of the students I teach in this low income Chicago school, this is the first time they have been in a school setting. At 5 and 6 years old they are itching to learn new things and become readers and writers. As a teacher trying to teach 21 students to read, I have found that my students learn best when I can work with a small group of students at one time. Leap Pads provide students the opportunity to work on their reading skills on their own. Leap Pads let the child read a story while listening to the story being read to them. In my classroom I currently have over 50 Leap Pad stories, but do not have even 1 Leap Pad which the students can use to read the stories. I hope that you will help these kindergarteners become the best readers they can be!
