Ms. MORENO from Houston TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Abra Kadabra, Let's Flash and Read!

My students need at least an e-book to catch up not only with novelties but also with the reality outside: e-books are a new way of reading! Let me help them discover the world growing!

My Students

Seven/eight years old. Many of them have never seen the sea, have never visited downtown (even though it is 15 minutes away from their areas) , have never visited a library apart from the one they have at the school. They do not know what life is apart from their house (usually occupied by many more siblings, grandparents, parents and unexpected little animal visitors that want to join)

However, their spirit is every single day full of energy!

They want to learn so much! They ask so many questions, they try to interact, they are curious, they are ready to grow up and explore the world!

Sometimes, since the school is all they have they see themselves forced to explore the planet just throughout their teachers. Let's give them that chance!

My Project

I have two groups of 22 and 24 students each. They read books in English pretty much every day, but since our library is not big at all, they get bored of the same books. Also, we do not have computers or laptops, so they cannot read electronic books either. The tablet would allow us to download interesting books and work on them in a different way and not with the traditional paper that they are so used to now.

Also, I teach them Math and Science and there are some really outstanding online resources that they could use during their workstations and I am sure that their attention would be caught much more easily with fun activities and interactive exercises.

The innovative part of the tablet will make them feel like real teachers and they will be for sure even more enthusiastic about reading now! Their "read to your partner" part will be very much enjoyed!

Also, if we put together different subjects, they will be able to develop the skills of IT learning for example, how to put books from the computer to the tablet. Too, they will have direct access to STEM alive projects and they could even interact with other schools in stream working on the same project. We will be killing two birds with a stone!

Let's let them grow!
