Help me give my students more technology to use in the classroom and a place to keep their small groups materials.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I have the privilege of teaching two groups of classes (in Spanish) of 25 students in an urban public K-8 school. My students are mainly of Hispanic backgrounds and come to school everyday with the eagerness and willingness to learn. Being able to find relatable Spanish material for my students (of whom I teach all day in their native language of Spanish) would be extremely beneficial.
One part of the day they look forward to the most is our Literacy Block.
Our students love reading and expanding their imaginations with both fiction and nonfiction works. Having technology will also help their literacy skill in a more engaging way.
Unfortunately with a public school budget we don’t have enough money for extra amenities in the classroom. My students would be extremely grateful to have a place to be able to organize all their materials.
Having a tablet in the classroom will help the students develop literacy through games, visuals and audio. As a Spanish speaking class the resources are limited. With a tablet, the students will be able to rotate and practice literacy skills at their level. It will also be used as a reward system at some point during the day.
The organizer will be used to have a place to put all the materials the students use during small groups.
That way, each group will know where their materials are and can be more organized.
These two materials will definitely help our students, in literacy and also in organization.
