Gribler' Reading Gang

Help me give my students Amazon tablets to take our reading instruction to the next level!

My Students

I am a first year, First Grade teacher, in an impoverished community. Currently, I work at a Title I public school in the inner-city. More than half of the students at my school are at a high-risk of meeting the minimum proficiency on state academic standards and assessments.

Although a majority of my students are low-level readers, they are energetic and enthusiastic about learning to read.

I would like for my students to be engaged by computers, but our classroom technology is out of date. As 21st century learners, my students would greatly benefit from having the technology that many other schools already have.

My Project

Mobile devices are everywhere: as 21st century learners, students learn best from technology. Nothing engages their brains like a tablet.

While computers are provided in our classrooms, they are outdated and most of them are not working.

Amazon tablets would allow to students to manipulate and read new words on up to date technology. Students can also access a plethora of books to read themselves or have read to them. They can explore new topics they would never see in Baton Rouge.

Technology is all around us. My students will be more equipped for the future with proper technology in our classroom. Your donation would bring them one step closer to success in and out of the classroom.
