Mr. Rosiejka from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books We Use to Learn and Work

My students need 2 Kindle Fire Tablets, LEGO readers, and map books for reading and social studies instruction.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are a mix of diverse learners and general education students. As a school, we're trying to include as many students as possible in the general education environment while still providing instruction in smaller settings. To achieve that, teachers and students are collaborating across environments.

Building responsibility and confidence makes a huge difference for my students.

We have rotations for math and reading to practice different skills and to build independence. It is difficult for my students at the beginning of the year, but by December, they can usually work for a full 30 minutes without teacher intervention during their independent work time.

My Project

Several of my students requested that we have more books that at least half of our class has asked for: LEGO and maps. They like using Google Maps to explore new and familiar places and they wanted some paper map materials. During recess, students browsed Amazon and made some suggestions.

The Kindles will be great additions to our library because accessibility features will allow students to keep up with their general education peers with read aloud options and magnification.

They will be made available to "check out" to the general education teachers for collaborative work as well.

The Kindle Fire tablets will also be used to look up information, start building an e-book library, discover new things, and access educational apps. Students are also excited to have a tool that can be used during indoor recess too. Lastly, the cable ties will help keep the new cables organized and make our technology cart easy to use.
