Mrs. Schneider from Brookings SD is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Fire to Help Ignite Our Minds!

My students need 5 Fire HD 10 Tablets in our room to help in many different areas. We will be using them in small groups and to have books read to us.

My Students

I have a great group of young learners. They come to school excited for each day! For some of them this is their first experience in school and they are soaking up all the information that is given to them.

They are by nature curious and always seeking more.

The students want to learn and are very eager to try new experiences. They are full of energy that I hope is never stifled. They have an incredible confidence in everything they do!

My Project

I am very excited for my students to have the flexibility of having tablets in our classroom. We do have a shared iPad cart for our building, but as a class, we don't have instant access to it at all times.

The use of these requested Amazon Fire tablets will be a great way for me to enhance my lessons and help the students learn concepts in a new manner.

I am excited to have the chance to use a program called Kahoot!

I enjoy looking for different ways to use technology in the classroom and I think this will be a great start!
