Mrs. Rakowski from Warren MI is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Thinkers

My students need 6 Fire tablets so that they can have access to technology to reinforce skills they are learning in class.

My Students

At the end of the school year I want my first graders to be ready for second grade. My greatest desire is for my students to be confident in the skills that they have. If they believe in themselves they will excel.

The majority of my students come to school every morning having had very little positive interactions with an adult at home the night before.

These students come to school and receive free breakfast and lunch everyday. My students are from low income families that have little to no access to technology at home. They are eager to learn and love working with technology.

My Project

Having these Fire tablets in the classroom will allow for groups of six students at a time to be engaged in learning activities during center based learning times. During our day we have two different center times once for math and once for reading. These tablets will allow my students to practice math facts, math concepts, counting, graphing, data keeping, sorting, letter sounds, sight words, reading skills, comprehension strategies, and they will be able to work on research topics. Students will also be able to use the camera and video features to document their learning through slide shows and movie presentations. These tablets will be in our classroom all day, everyday which will provide continual access to them and will allow for spontaneous learning adventures.

Donations to this project will allow for the purchase of these tablets.

The fire tablets will enrich daily activities in my classroom. My students are eager to learn and they are excited about school. Having these tablets in my room will enrich our daily classroom activities and continually engage all students.
