Technology for Struggling Readers

Help me give my students the technology they need to succeed in reading. Each student would benefit from having a Chromebook to use in class while utilizing the iReady reading program. This is a program that guarantees growth.

My Students

I have around 30 students. We are a low-income school in a county with a high poverty rate. These students are struggling with basic reading skills such as phonological awareness and phonics.

My students love to come to my class for reading intervention, because it is an environment where they feel safe.

They can work on their reading skills in a small group with other students who are experiencing similar difficulties. I only have around five students at a time which allows for lots of one-on-one and individualized instruction. The students love the individual attention that they get in my class each day. It is wonderful to see the lightbulb come on for these students! They are super excited when they make progress of any kind.

My Project

We have a new program we are using to access our students in reading. It is called iReady reading. It pinpoints exactly where the students are struggling and generates lessons that focus on the specific skills each student needs to work on. I only have iPads in my intervention classroom right now. iPads do not support the iReady program and the iPads that I have are outdated.

We are requesting five Chromebooks which would allow me to utilize this program with my struggling readers in intervention.

This program guarantees a 38% growth in reading if it is used for 45 minutes each week. My students will get to benefit from this program in my class for 10 to 15 minutes per day every day if I can gain access to Chromebooks for my students.
