My Students

Help me give my students a feeling like they are in school interacting with me by way of read alouds and book clubs. Having the capability to read books and have dialogues will be fun and engaging for me and my students.

My Project

My students love books and love for me to read to them- coming together for discussions, predictions, debating, and so much more.

Most of my students are not reading on grade level, but that does not justify not wanting to listen to books read to them!

Having an Echo Dot will allow read aloud from my audible. The Amazon glow light pulsates to sounds and gives a great ambience feel. Students love a homey effect when I’m reading. Having these tools will engage them even more.

With libraries closed, schools closed, and no way of getting new books, our students are desperate to get new reading materials! Teachers in Florida are teaching at home; therefore, it is impossible to sit with my students to read, but I can do it virtually. I want to make my virtual reading station at home, comfortable, warm just like at school.
