Closing the Achievement Gap With Technology!

My students need Fire tablets to access online reading and math interactive resources

My Students

My students come from a low-income area where 99% of them are awarded free lunch. Many of them come from broken homes, bounce around to different relatives, and some are even in shelters. My school is a community school, where many students are residing nearby. The school has 5-7 classes in each grade and many classrooms have many students with special needs who need a little extra TLC, visuals, and repetition. My school offers our kids a warm, safe, and loving environment daily.

My Project

My students have a hard time staying focused and engaged while reading as well as practicing their math fluency. To help students, my school bought into an online reading program called Myon. Additionally, my school also bought an online program called Mathletics. Both websites are extremely interactive and cater to the specific needs of each user, each student. However, many of my students do not have access to internet connection or tablets at home. Their only interactions with these programs are during school hours. When the students are able to use our existing seven tablets, they are SO completely interested! I have even seen an increase in academic performance of those students who have the opportunity to access these interactive resources on line. However, with 30 students, seven tablets do not go very far.

By donating the Fire tablets to this project, you are ensuring that ALL students have access to the technology they desperately need to stay not only motivated but in touch in this technological world we live in.

These Fire tablets allow ALL students access to technology and in return helps me as the educator slowly close the academic gap in education.
