My students would love to actively engage in a digital story. Especially if school is the only place that could offer that opportunity to them.
Our community has many needs.
Students live in a high poverty area and many do not have access to technology at home. Many of our young students who are just starting school are learning to speak English and do not have books to read at home. We have one of the largest schools in our district. I would love to give these students access to a new world.
The Speakaboos program gives students a chance to engage with the stories in a way that they have not been able to before. The students will enhance their English Language skills while they are developing vocabulary and reading comprehension. This program will help them to learn many skills and they will be having so much fun, they won't know they are learning!
Many of our young students come from a foreign country and have to not only learn to speak English, but assimilate to a new culture as well.
My students will have access to technology that will enhance their reading, language acquisition, and oral expression.
