Ms. F.'s 5th grade is doing FLIPS for Independent Reading!

My students need the Kindle Fire tablets to integrate technology with independent reading...along with a new and improved high interest library.

My Students

I have the greatest privilege to have huge personalities in my classroom, this year. Several of them will move on into great careers with their vibrant interpersonal communication skills.

My students are ready, excited and determined!

My school caters to a large Hispanic population, which encompasses a high percentage of ESOL students. They are hardworking and cooperative in the classroom. I have integrated a strong model for student centered learning, creativity, and critical thinking. With their great enthusiasm some extra resources will be very helpful!

My Project

My students are developing into strong readers with high stamina. The book collections chosen for the class are all high interest books at grade level. There is something special about having a library with new books, that are in great condition. I believe the students will have a sense of confidence when diving into the new library.

Reading fosters new ideas, and new ideas can CHANGE THE WORLD!

Having high interest books along with books on the Kindle Fire independent reading in class will ignite to new levels! having options inside of a library is very powerful. It will bring great joy to the students to feel THAT special they were given brand new books!
