A New Addition to the Reading Program!

P Mound participants reading on the new Kindles!

This month was very exciting because we got to start using Kindles at our sites!  We had a generous donor donate 15 kindles to Project Transformation, 9 of which I get to use at Pleasant Mound. The day I brought the Kindles to site was like Christmas at our site, as the kids were so excited to start using them. The students love to get their homework done now, as when they are finished with their homework, they get to use a kindle. What is more exciting is that next semester we will be able to have the 5th and 6th grade students use the Kindles for reading enrichment in reading a book on their level on the Kindles. The interns, students, and I are truly grateful for the donation of Kindles, and I cannot wait to see how much our students will learn academically from this technology.
