Mr. Burnitt from Naples FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Accelerated Reading Made Easy with Kindle Fires

My students need two Kindle Fires with protective covers for Accelerated Reading Quizzes.

  • $567 goal

This project expired on August 18, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

A day in my classroom is busy, but when it is reading time, the students all settle down and get out a book to read. As of now we have over 400 Accelerated Reader books in the room. Students are reading and the requested Kindle Fires will come in handy for when they are ready to take their quiz on the book.

My students are readers.

When they finish assigned work they get out a book and read. The Kindle Fire will be an icon in the classroom. Students can sit at their desk and take their quiz and not get up to bother those around them. My students love the outdoors for science, but when it comes to reading, that is their number one activity to do. I have a mixed group of students with mixed reading levels. There plenty of times when two computers in the room is not enough when the names on the whiteboard rise to ten wanting to take a quiz. I have even brought in my own laptop computer for students to use on an AR quiz.

My Project

Their are not enough computers in my room to take AR quizzes. The two requested Kindle Fires will give students access to more options in taking the quizzes. They will also provide students a way not to disturb others trying to read. The Kindle Fires will be on the wireless network. In time of need I bring in my own personal laptop for the students to use when taking quizzes, but the Kindle Fires will be a helpful addition to the classroom.

The Kindle Fires will be a welcomed addition to our classroom.

They will be on the wireless system that is much faster than our wired connection. Students won't have to wait like with our two desktop computers. The wireless is faster and the Kindle Fires will be on the wireless.
