Technology as a reading tool

In the Resource classrooms there are some great individualized programs that students can use and set their own pace. Students are motivated by the interactivity of the programs and teachers are able to monitor progress. Students in Ms. Juarez's class have access to books that will read to them to help them with sight words and new vocabulary.
