My Students

I recently transferred to a new school and I am excited to begin teaching and learning! However, I have not yet met my students. I do want them to be successful in Reading this year and one way to do this is to have them connect to Biblionasium.com during literacy rotations. They can read books that may not be in the classroom library for Independent Reading. This would help build student excitement around Reading because they would have a vast array of books to select from. As such, I am requesting 5 classroom tablets that students can use to log on to online resources and begin taking ownership of their Reading. I cannot wait to see their excitement as they read books online and share what they are reading with their classmates. My goal is to get all students excited about Reading in an effort to increase their comprehension and stimulate their imagination. I will definitely let you know the incredible things that happen in our classroom as a result of your kind donation. Thanks so much!

My Project

My new classroom has a class library. However, I have found that students' interest in books go way beyond the classroom walls. Students are really excited to read books online. I would like to provide my students with this opportunity. I want for my students to be extremely excited about reading as this allows them to easily and eagerly take ownership of their learning.

Your donation of a tablet to our classroom will motivate my students to read books that are of interest to them, thus improving their comprehension and stimulating their imagination.

Students will escape to places that they may never set foot in, but more importantly they will learn about different cultures and topics. I want my students to be avid readers and this project will help make this possible. Thanks so much in advance for supporting my project!
