Mrs. Cathey from Anderson SC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fired Up for Reading!!

My students need the five Kindle fire tablets for use of reading and exploring with technology during center time. The cases will protect the devices.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

High poverty, Title One, students who start out their education considered the underdog.

It's not where you come from, it's where you are going!

Kids who are excited about hands-on team work! My students believe they can achieve anything. They are hard working, energetic and curious six year old kids. They excel and give one hundred percent of themselves every day. They are the future engineers, chefs, teachers, athletes and maybe even a President! The opportunities are endless. I can't wait to see where the future takes them!

My Project

The students in my classroom have access to a classroom library, but the Kindle Fire tablets will also give the students the opportunity to explore the world of books through technology. Kids knowing about technology helps to pave their way to the future.

Technology can make books come to life.

Making reading fun and exciting always keeps the students engaged. I think being able to use this technology in the classroom will excite the students even more about exploring different genres. This project will promote and provide what my students need to become better readers, writers and listeners. I have requested cases to protect the devices and headphones for the privacy of the students.
