My students need a way to be fully engaged no matter where they are sitting during my lessons. Document readers are a great way to grab the attention of little ones.

It is very difficult for my students to see what I write on the dry erase boards, it's hard for me to model the use of manipulatives, and sometimes my students complain that they can't see the pictures when I am reading to them.
My students are eager to learn new things and they love it when I use my projector during a lesson.
I'm looking for a way to involve my students during lessons. I would love to call students to come up and read a sentence from a book or use counters to model number bonds. I know my students would love to see their work on the projector for all their friends to see
Having a document reader would provide so many possibilities for my students. My students would be able to see examples from all over the room, share their writing with one another, and never have to fight for a spot on the carpet because they can't see the pictures in a book.
At my old school I had a document reader and I used it in every lesson I taught and I miss not having one in my classroom this year.
When you have a document reader in your class it creates all kinds of learning possibilities. Not only did I use it but my students used it throughout the year. It's an incredible thing when you see a struggling reader or writer get up and be excited to use a document reader to read or share their writing with their friends.
