My Students

Our students are an inner city population with limited resources at home. All of our students get free lunch and breakfast every day. Our children are very smart for their age and love to utilize technology in the reading classroom to challenge themselves.

We use multiple reading and vocabulary sites to reinforce skills in the classroom.

We are amazed at the excitement and the time that our students are immersed in reading and vocabulary every day in the classroom. Out students are hardworking and truly care about the work.

My Project

Students will have access to these tablets every day to accelerate their reading success. They will be able to access web sites used during reading class such as Flocabulary, Readworks, and Epic. Access to daily technology will open up a whole new world to our students.

Many of the reading sites we use have proven research that shows that students' test scores go up when their content is used to engage students on a regular basis.

We plan on putting technology into every student's hands during reading class each day. This will allow themselves to be immersed in literature that really excites them!
