Mrs. Appling from Fort Worth TX is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Academic Advancement in Pre-K

My students need supplies to help them learn to write, quietly listen to phonics on their tablets, books to learn how to read and toys to supply their learning centers.

My Students

I am a first year teacher and my Pre-K class is comprised of 22 awesome students, many of whom come from very low-income households. Each one of my students receive free breakfast and lunch from school and at times, this could possibly be their only meal of the day. Our school is a Title I school and serves students from Pre-K to 5th grade from many diverse backgrounds. Our goal is to prepare our wonderful students for success in school and give them the skills they need to have a prosperous and rewarding life. My classroom is a place of challenge and discovery where my students are eager to explore and learn.

My Project

My students must keep up with the latest in education. Education for Pre-K students is changing every day, and so is the interest of my students. Students in my classroom want to learn to write, learn to read, and to learn about farm and zoo animals, and I want to help them on down this path. I do not have many "learning to read" books in my class, and my Amazon Fire 7 tablets do not have headphones for my students to quietly listen to phonics while I continue to work with others in the class. By donating to my class you will help my students with their academic achievement!
