Scratch-proof Reading With Kindle Screen Protectors

My students need Garunk screen protectors for their Kindles in my classroom so the screens will not get scratched and last for a long time.

My Students

"Believing takes practice." Many of my sixth-grade students walk into my classroom the first day of school and tell me they hate to read! My response is that they don't hate to read, they hate what they are reading! By the end of the school year, most of the "reluctant readers" are reading wonderful books.

As a matter of fact, one of my students actually went to a local bookstore and bought the second book written by an author we had studied.

He was reading two books at the same time. You may say that is a miracle, but it's not. My job as an ELA teacher is to show students some wonderful literature and match them up with not only great books but exciting reading activities.

The school district I teach in is in a rural community with not many opportunities for students to be exposed to great literature. My hope is that through Donors Choose, I will be able to bring exciting and interest-grabbing literature and activities to my classroom.

My Project

My classroom was given thirty Kindle Fire tablets this year. It was funded through a grant in addition to many community members contributions. I have decided before my students begin to use the Kindles in class they need to be protected. I want these Kindles to last a long time so I need to be able to purchase protective screen covers to do this.

My students will be using the Kindles every day in literature groups.

Students will have choices between three e-books. They are very excited at the idea of reading a book online. Most of them have never used a Kindle to read from. I believe this experience will help them learn to read a book on a screen which will also help them practice for their state tests.
