Congratulations to Laurie Sellers!
Laurie Sellers was the winner for a Bright Ideas Grant and the Education Foundation Grant!
Bright Ideas Grant from Rutherford Electric- The money will be used to help students with reading fluency as they sing lyrics on the Wii. I will purchase speakers for my smart board so they can see and hear the lyrics, microphones so multiple students can sing along, Wii software, and batteries. Utilizing the Wii and karaoke songs students will have the opportunity to select songs that interest them, as they sing the lyrics to the beat of the music they will be enhancing their fluency skills!
Education Foundation Grant from Lincoln County Schools- The grant will be used to buy 2 mini iPads, cases and download educational apps for K-3 students to enhance their reading.
