Mrs. Taebel from Gilbert AZ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Grade Will Be on Fire!

Help me give my students 4 Amazon Fire Tablets for individual listening libraries. Each student will have a copy of a book on the tablets and be able to listen to it at their own pace.

My Students

Let me share a little about not only my students but the school as well. My amazing 1st graders love to learn. They are so eager learn. As always it is my goal to make sure that when they leave my class, they are successful in their learning goals. Here are a few ways we love to learn. One is through hands on centers along with project based learning. This helps tremendously with their achievements with higher learning. I have 18 students currently.

I'll go above and beyond to help my students become successful learners!

The school is a small charter school with a big heart. The students there are outstanding young people who give it their all. The teachers always give a 100%. I do everything we can to make sure that each one of our students feel successful in their academics along with their overall self being.

My Project

My students love technology, however this is a limited resource for us. Currently we have four desktops that we have access to. The use of these 4 Amazon Fire tablets with the screen protector and tablet protector will make them manageable for my first graders to handle. We will use the tablets daily to enrich knowledge in phonics, reading, and math. Another great resource provided will be that I will be able to utilize these tablets to differentiate learning for those students who need that extra support.

By donating to our project, you will help to increase the academic growth of my students.

As you are aware we have become more technology based in our classrooms and in everyday life. I want to help my students become more technology literate in a world where technology is becoming the norm in classrooms. My students deserve nothing but the best education possible and more technology will help to make it possible.
