Ms. Sanders from San Francisco CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Exciting Independent Reading

My students need 8 Leap Frog TAG School Reading System pens to encourage a love of reading and reinforce early literacy skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My class of 23 diverse, urban kindergarten students live below the poverty line, are English language learners, and have not attended preschool. They love to look at the books in our classroom library, but are often frustrated by their inability to understand the story on their own.

I am writing this grant for a class set of 8 LEAP frog TAG readers, headphones, software, and stories that will enable my students to experience and interact with stories like The Cat in the Hat, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and the Little Engine that Could in an independent, exciting way. This system will also provide a wonderful opportunity to practice fluent English, answer standards based challenge questions and play comprehension games.

I plan to use these interactive pens and headphones throughout the day and especially during morning centers when the parents will participate with their students and learn how to enrich home reading experiences.

Your donation can open the world of books to my students and their parents in an interactive way that will create an excitement for learning and exposure to technology that will stay with them for a lifetime. Please make this difference for my students!
