My Students

Many of my students struggle to read and need to find the joy of reading which would capture their imaginations. This could be the year to make that magic happen and to help these students read on grade level.

Many of my students are struggling to read on grade level.

They are very excited to learn and do want more out of life. The excitement in their eyes when the "light bulb" turns on is amazing! The excitement is outstanding. My students come from middle to poverty levels. We are a "Leader In Me School" which is giving my students life skills to become a better person and citizen.

My Project

My students would use the Kindle Fires to do the reading program "Raz-Kids". The students would read a story on their own level and then answer comprehension questions. Each student would be able to work at their own pace. Everything is tracked online and the program has built in incentives to encourage the students on. Adding these Kindle Fires to the classroom will allow another reading activity for the students, which involves technology and spurs their interest on. This activity will increase reading levels and comprehension skills in the students.

The donations to this project will help my students to become successful on-grade readers.

This will provide a life skill to carry them on to great and important contributors to society.
