Help Bring Our Kindergarteners Into the 21st Century!

My Students

25 Kindergarteners sometimes find it hard to focus, especially in the afternoons. English Language Learners need lots of visuals and modeling in order to learn! A projector can help us overcome both of these obstacles.

Our class is made up of 15 boys and 10 girls, and all of them are working really hard at learning English, in addition to kindergarten content.

Most of the students are from the Dominican Republic, although we have some students from Mexico, and one child from Egypt. Our school is in a high poverty, high needs area in New York. It is a wonderful Pre-K to 5 school with great ratings.

My Project

A projector would help our class do so many things! I could model a diagram as we work on completing our All About Books. I could project a book that we are reading and have children show each other how they should be pointing and following along with the text. I can display maps to learn about the world...they love maps! I can model math activities and games for my struggling students without having the entire class have to stop. The possibilities are endless!

By donating to this project, not only are you making an important difference to this group of little ones, you will be affecting the education of many others to come.

Technology is something that we need to have in the classroom, and having a projector is a simple step in getting there.
