My Students

My transitional kindergarten students need help in developing their readiness skills.

My kindergarten students are a wonderful bunch.

They put forth great effort with the limited materials we currently have. My students attend an elementary school where close to 60% of our students are English Language Learners and 90% of our students receive free or reduced lunch.

My Project

The 6 iPod Nanos will help my students learn to spell their names and new words. My transitional kindergarten students will listen to digital books while we do centers. They will have access to many learning games. Their chances of learning the alphabet and their numbers will increase with repetition and reinforcing these skills. They will also learn new vocabulary. My students will have access to hundreds of books with the tap of a finger and they can explore interactively, hear stories in multiple languages, or even record themselves as they read.

Donations will make a big difference to this project because my students will be given an opportunity to develop readiness skills in mathematics and reading that they need to become great readers and mathematicians.
