Kathy Parker and Her Kindle Crew - Update

We are now going to allow our 8th grade students to take the Kindles they are using in their Lang/Lit classes home! After much feedback and discussion we felt for the students to totally benefit from the Kindle reading experience they needed to be allowed to take them home. I ordered some padded Kindle carrying pouches for the students to use. We have written up a Kindle Checkout Form for parents and students to sign.
