Burning for Learning - Discovery with Our Fire Tablets
My students need 2 Amazon Fire Kids Tablets for more differentiated opportunities to practice their literacy and math skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I've had the amazing opportunity to welcome a kind, diverse group of scholars to my classroom, and for many of them, this is their first experience with the school environment at all.
My school serves some of the highest need students in our area, and I want to set a foundation for academic success.
My students bring a variety of languages, cultures, and backgrounds to our classroom, and many of them are still learning how to be ready to learn at school. However, each and every child has such a great potential to learn, and we have high academic expectations for our kindergarten scholars!
The Dream Team has been so grateful to have access to additional technology this year! We recently added a "tablet" station to our phonics and guided reading rotations, and this has been an absolute hit! My scholars are so engaged practicing their literacy skills with fun letter sounds and sight word games they can play with these tablets, and this engagement has translated into amazing growth so far!
We are hoping to add a tablet to our station to increase our practice time and create more opportunities for individualized learning.
Right now, students need to share the tablets. I am hoping to have enough tablets so each student will be working independently - this way, I can have each scholar working on the skill they need to target, and they aren't losing any practice time by needing to alternate turns with a partner. Thank you for helping us continue to utilize technology in our learning this year!
