Mrs. Shadow from Memphis TN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Confident Tablet Readers

My students need the Amazon Fire 7 to assist in inspiring confidence as they work toward mastering the 3rd grade reading skills.

My Students

As I review data from various district assessments, it is evident that my students are in need of additional materials to provide them with more opportunities to be able to read on grade level and learn the English language. I currently teach 20 students where more than half of my students are ELLs (English Language Learners - English is a second language). My students are 8-9 years old and come from homes where they speak Spanish, Korean, and Arabic. Learning to read, speak, and write English is definitely a challenge. Majority of my students are reading and writing at below grade level and are in need of additional support.

This group has become a family supporting each other through their journey of reading, speaking and writing.

When they work together they treat each others responses, whether they are wrong or correct, with respect. They build each other up when one of their peers gets an answer incorrect. My students want to learn and are willing to do what it takes to get there.

My Project

As my students work toward getting to and on a 3rd grade reading the tablets will provide many opportunities to improve their reading levels. The majority of my students are below 3rd grade reading level and need as many opportunities to practice reading and writing.

Having the technology, such as the Amazon Fire 7 tablets, would allow my students to work on additional reading programs within my classroom.

Each tablet will provide my students with another approach to mastering the reading skills needed to get them closer to reading on grade level, if not, on grade or above level. Since many are 8 -9 years old and learning to read, speak, and write english, working on the Amazon Fire 7 tablets will allow each of my students to practice their reading, writing, and speaking skills with programs like Raz-Kids (Reading A-Z) supports each student on their reading level. Allows, me, the teacher to monitor each students progress and assess each student in order to level them up. Having the tablets will definitely inspire my students as they continue their academic careers in reading.
