Ms. Nelson from Washington DC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Amazon Tablets for Reading Intervention Learners!

My students need Amazon Fire 7 Tablets with Alexa and cases to access district required Lexia reading intervention software to teach students who are below grade level and to access other adaptive learning programs.

My Students

My reading intervention groups (grades K-5), are full of unique personalities. Creative, funny, dramatic, and mysterious; my students come from diverse backgrounds: 20% homeless, 47% speak a language other than English at home, and 23% receive special education services.

My students are energetic, curious, and ready to learn; however, not having enough technology often thwarts this process because many of the activities needed to facilitate this learning are computer based.

Lack of materials should not prevent them from getting what they need.

My Project

Thirty minutes daily of intense reading intervention is what my students need to help close the achievement gap among grade level peers. We will use these tablets for Lexia spell read, a research-proven adaptive program that provides explicit, systematic, personalized learning in the six areas of reading instruction, targeting skill gaps as they emerge, and providing teachers with the data and student-specific resources they need for individual or small-group instruction.

These tablets will provide my students with available technology; allowing them to access this computer based program daily.

This will provide them with the practice needed to develop reading strategies to help them increase their reading lexile levels. Having these tablets with cases in our classroom will allow the students to practice their literacy skills regularly; instead of sporadically due to lack of available technology in the school, help bridge the digital divide, and give low-income students access to new technology which is an investment in their future.
