Technology for Young Readers

My students need 2 Samsung Series 5 Chromebooks to practice literacy skills.

My Students

I teach second grade to a group of 19 fun loving, active students who are hardworking and eager to succeed and learn. My students are excited to learn and to demonstrate their good manners and proper behavior.

Due to their socioeconomic status all of the students in my class as well as in the rest of the school are on free lunch.

Each child comes from a unique background and often needs support. My class includes students that are gifted and talented, struggling readers, students with attention difficulties, and English Language Learners. While they face many unique challenges and issues, all are eager to succeed and are hardworking scholars.

My Project

The Samsung Series 5 Chromebooks that I am requesting for my students will allow us to use online reading resources, e-books, literacy games, etc. We can find many books online that contain characters that children love and are able to connect with easily. With these resources my students will be able to select books that are at the just right reading level, increase their understanding of what is happening in a story, and retell the important events of a story to demonstrate their comprehension. These materials will help the learning process of character education, bullying prevention and more to be successful in our school. Our students are our future so we must do everything in our power to help them learn about the importance of a great character.

This project will allow students to access the online resources to be able to improve their reading skills as well as to learn important character traits that are key for them not only in school but in life.

These Samsung Chromebooks will increase the reading resources beyond the classroom library available daily to my students. Reading is more than a group of skills needed for daily living. Reading is a gift and an adventure to be LOVED!
