Ms. Teacher from Cleveland OH is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Earful of Reading!

My students need headphones and covers for the IPads so that each child can access the IPads individually. This allows the IPads to be preserved longer from the daily wear and tear.

My Students

I teach in a urban setting with 100% of my students receiving a reduced/free lunch. I have a melting pot of students who have come from all over the world. Several students are English as a Second Language. This is an obstacle for them to learn the subject as well as speak English. That obstacle gets harder as they get older, the parent is now limited to helping the child at home. I have 19 students on Reading Improvement Plans (RIMP). Having a RIMP means the child has many challenges with reading, whether it be limited exposure to texts or books or receiving the extra support from home. Teaching in a urban setting also brings the obstacle of not having technology in the home. Children in my classroom take all their tests on a computer. The lack of exposure to how to manipulate a computer is very severe and thus limits the child from being successful like their counterparts in more affluent areas. My kids come to class to get away, their own paradise and if I can give them the opportunity to be successful, I will do whatever it takes.

Every child deserves every opportunity to create their dreams!

My Project

The students will use the IPad headphones in center time. During the rotation the IPads will allow them to listen to and read using several applications. The stories students will be listening will reinforce fluency and allow ESL students to hear the word spoken correctly. The applications the students will use differ from grammar usage, comprehension, editing sentences, spelling, antonyms/synonyms and figurative language. An example of the applications students use in reading is Reading A-Z, Raz Kids. Not only wil students use technology in reading but also in math. We use IXL. Lastly the students will use the IPads to share their reading/math skills/progress with their parents during conferences.
