Ms. Highley from Nixa MO is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fired Up About Reading!

My students need a Kindle Fire with a screen cover and a case.

My Students

Help! We are a one-computer classroom! My students need more opportunities to work with technology in the classroom.

I have 19 wonderful students in my fourth grade class.

We are a Title I school in Missouri, and only have one (old) computer in our classroom. Many of my students do not have the opportunity to work with technology at home, so I would like to provide that experience for them at school.

My Project

With a Kindle Fire, my students will gain access to quality reading material and opportunities to do research in the classroom. They will learn how to use this tool for many purposes. I feel that it is my job to prepare my students for the future, and with this piece of technology, a protective case and screen cover, they will be able to learn critical skills that they will use the rest of their lives.

My students and I would greatly appreciate your generosity in donating to this project.

This tool will provide engaging learning experiences for students in need. Help us get FIREd up!
