My Students

I desire for all of my students to become strong readers. One of my favorite quotes is: "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

Half of my students are 2nd graders and half are 3rd graders.

While I am teaching one class the other is learning German from my partner teacher. My students know that when they are in my room that they can always pull out a book and read. Two of my biggest goals this year are to have every student improve their love for reading and their reading comprehension. Our school currently does not have a library.

My Project

I am requesting two iPad mini tablets for the classroom. Apps are available for the iPad that provide individualized reading passages for students at his or her reading level. The Apps not only help monitor reading comprehension but also provide opportunities for increased reading comprehension. The portability of the iPads will make it easy for a student to work at their desk or in our reading corner. The students will also be able to use the iPads for extra math practice and reinforcing math skills.

It is so very important for students to love reading and become life long learners.

I believe that the iPads will create excitement and provide students with a fun way to experience reading.
