Reading Rules The School

Help me give my students Kindle Fire tablets capable of supporting audio books so they can listen to the book while they read it. This helps support reading skills and comprehension of the story.

My Students

I support middle school students in all subject areas. The students I work with deal with delays in reading, writing, math, organizational skills, and life skills. They are a very diverse group yet they are all hard-working, fun-loving, and compassionate individuals. I love watching them find their voice and develop the courage to speak it.

When you talk about perseverance, you are talking about my students.

They put in quite a bit of energy to try and keep pace with peers who might not experience the obstacles they have. Each of my students have dreams and aspirations for life after school. One student wants to be a writer, another a fish biologist, and another an architect. Another student wants to play professional football. Other students are still figuring it out. I feel lucky to be able to help them work toward whatever goals they have in life.

My school practices inclusion as much as it benefits the students. Students get the best of both worlds in that they are alongside their peers for general instruction and then can work in small group or individual settings to help cement that instruction as needed.

My Project

Kindle Fires, with audio book support, will help my students access books that are required reading for their classes. My students have several books that are required reading throughout the year. With audio books, they can listen to the story while reading the book.

Research has shown this increases comprehension and vocabulary development.

For instance, a student can listen to The Hate U Give while reading it. This would help her understand what is happening in the story and it's flow better than if she was just reading it and couldn't quite read or understand every word. This also helps with the speed of which it takes a student to read through a book. Kindle Fires provide a device they can use and even take home if needed.
