OUR project

At Stepgates, we are always looking for ways to close the gap of attainment and develop independence in our children. We want to buy 7" tablets, to allow smaller hands the chance to benefit by giving them the equipment to develop their independence in choosing and hearing quality reading from audio books.

Listening to the book as you look at the words will develop children's understanding of phrasing and use of punctuation. Our hope is that by being exposed to audio books read by accomplished readers we will develop successful readers.
