Mrs. Morris from Bronx NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

English Emergency!

My students need access to English every day all day in an interactive, fun and engaging way. The digital courseware is needed for English immersion. We need videos, stories, online encyclopedias and an interactive math program.

My Students

I would like my students to feel comfortable enough to take risks in English. Entering the country at different points in the year, having little or no access to English beforehand or outside of school is a major challenge for my students.

My students are a wonderful, diverse group of English language learners coming from seven different countries.

They range from newcomers having just entered the country to students who are approaching English proficiency. We are a self contained class providing a safe, welcoming environment for students of all levels of English acquisition.

My Project

These resources will provide high quality access to English on a daily basis, strengthening developing skills and introducing and familiarizing beginners with the language. The students can work at their own pace and repeat activities and stories as often as needed. The items I am requesting are videos, stories, online encyclopedias and an interactive math program that will strengthen and reinforce students English acquisition at their level and assist them in language progression. The digital courseware is engaging and non-threatening. Immersion in English through pictures, stories and high interest engaging nonfiction material builds confidence as well as vocabulary. My students love working on the computer, and these items will give them the boost they need to begin speaking English!

This project will help our class because of the non-threatening nature of the materials.

They are engaging and high quality, allowing students to easily access English. Gaining confidence in the classroom helps to boost their self esteem and feel comfortable attempting to speak, read and write in school, at home and in the community.
