My students need Kindles so that they can listen to audiobooks as they read their grade level appropriate book. The other materials we need are simply for charging and listening to the devices.
"I want to read the same books my friends are!" That is just one of the many comments I hear from many of my students. My students come to school each day eager to learn and challenge themselves. Many of my students are reading below grade level and receive a reading intervention rather than a more fun exploratory class such as computers or Family and Consumer Science. We work hard at providing rigorous academics to prepare our students for high school and beyond. Our goal is to nurture the whole child academically and social-emotionally to prepare them for their next path in life.
We provide an experience that you cannot get in the larger schools.
Teachers know each student and work hard at having a personal connection with each one. Many of my students receive free or reduced lunch and do not have access to rich, quality literature.
I have a variety of learners in my 6th-grade Literature class. I have students who are reading at a high school level while others are reading at a second or third-grade level. Those students are the students who keep me up at night. They desperately seek to be able to read books that their friends are reading, but are unable to understand what is going on in grade level books that their classmates are reading. The Kindles will allow this access so that deep and rich conversations can take place.
This project will help increase the confidence of my students!
They will be able to have deep and meaningful conversations with their peers about books that are grade-level appropriate. Up until this point, my students have not been able to read those grade-level appropriate books well enough to understand. My students will feel like they are equals which is something they have not been able to feel before at the academic level!
