E-Reader For Classroom

My students need a new Kindle Fire.

My Students

The technology at our school is terrible. My classroom computers run slowly, if they work at all. I am trying to incorporate more technology into my classroom, but it is difficult without the proper equipment. The Kindle Fire will help with both technology and literacy.

We are a small rural school in Colorado.

The school is K-4. We are a second grade class of 18 students. Our school is about 70% free and reduced lunch. Every morning the students eat breakfast in my classroom while the librarian reads them a story. Our breakfast is federally funded due to the students' low economic status. The kids themselves are wonderful and love learning everyday. It has been one of the greatest thrills of my life to watch them grow and learn.

My Project

I am requesting a Kindle Fire. The reason I am requesting a Kindle Fire is because I can get free e-books. I currently have no way to read my free e-books from Scholastic, Amazon Prime, and the local library. I know that the Kindle will be an engaging way for students to read.

Many of my students do not have a computer or Internet at home.

This project will help students use a piece of technology they otherwise would not be able to use. I know for many of my students using a Kindle to read a book will be the highlight of their day or week. Finally, as a class we have been working on what it means to be a part of a community. By funding this project it will show my students that others care about them and their community.
