Mr. Bouchard from Manchester NH is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need access to digital libraries to further expand their reading abilities. I am requesting four iPads and covers to access these digital libraries.
My students are eager to read, especially in their free time. They are constantly diving into the worlds of adventure and mystery. The range of topics goes from comic books to novels. My students WANT to read, and I want to give them the outlet to do so. Students in my class love reading comic books and story books alike. However, they are frequently having to re-read my classroom materials because of the lack of variety. I want to allow my students choices to further expand their imaginations and reading abilities.
This project is aimed at having a set of 4 iPad tablets in the classroom to serve as digital libraries. With the iPads, I plan to link both Amazon Book and Marvel Comics from my personal accounts to download as many age appropriate Free to Read books, comic books, and graphic novels as possible for the students to have access to.
This project will allow my students to explore the worlds of fiction novels and comic books to expand their minds and vocabularies.
I personally have accumulated over 5,000 digital comic books and even more Kindle books. I would use these iPad tablets to load the desired reading materials chosen by the students to create a mini digital classroom library. Our students have an Enrichment period each day where they seek to further their education, and many of them choose to use that time to read.
My students love reading comic books, but I have exhausted my personal resources of physical comic books, and have no outlet currently to offer them my digital library. Likewise, our school library is great, but often times students want something that our library does not have. With a digital platform, I will be able to share much more reading material with my students.
