Kindling a Love of Reading Through Listening

My students need 2 Kindle Fires along with cases to allow them to access more novels by being able to listen to them on Audible while reading.

My Students

As many already know, 4th graders are the best! I am lucky enough to see 100 students every single day. My 4th graders are goofy, sensitive, chatty, intelligent, kind, wonderful, and they are hard workers. My students come to my classroom for grammar instruction and reading. In my classroom, students either get to independently read or work with me in a small reading group.

Our city is THE poorest large city in the United States.

Though we have beautiful prestigious universities, where 1 out of every 6 doctors in the United States have received his or her medical degree, we also have neighborhoods that are in food deserts and filled with poverty and violence.

We open our doors at 7:45. At 7:46, I have students running into my classroom. My students come each and every day ready to learn. They are joyful, respectful, and eager to learn. I am so lucky to be teaching so many wonderful 4th graders.

My Project

This project includes two Kindle Fires along with 2 cases. I plan on using the Kindle Fires in my classroom to allow students to listen to what they're reading using Audible. They are already listening to audiobooks through using 2 school-provided laptops, and an iPad that I provided myself, but I would like to allow more students access to audiobooks.

Giving students the opportunity to listen to what they read, allows them to have access to more difficult texts they might not normally be able to read on their own.

By using Audible, students who are reading below grade level now have access to texts at grade level and above grade level. It also allows my on-grade level and above-grade level readers to read and listen engaging reads.
