My students need Kindle e-Readers because our students' local library is in jeopardy of closing.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We teach a language and learning disabilities self contained class. Chronologically we are a fifth grade class, their functioning level ranges from first to fourth. The majority of our students are bilingual whose parents speak only Spanish or Creole. This makes getting help with homework difficult.
At the start of the school year, many of the students
were beginning readers, however as the year progressed the reading fluency and comprehension improved. The best part of this job is seeing the smiles on their faces when they progressed from beginning reader to reading independently.
Our project is designed to foster a love of reading. Growing up, I did not have access to books. Money was scarce and it definitely was not spent on books. Once a week, the book mobile came to my school. At first, it was an excuse to get out of class but my teacher made us write a quick summary in order to go back. By the third week I was hooked and began looking forward to the Book Mobile visits.
The love for reading began just because I had access to books.
That's what I want to give my students freedom and access to read. We plan on using the Kindle E-Readers to give the students access to hundreds of books.
