My students need an iPad mini 3 and kid-safe case with kick stand for reading and math activities.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Technology is such an important piece of learning these days.
I teach a wonderful group of second grade students.
Though they are enthusiastic about learning, the majority of our school lives in section 8 housing. Over 90% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch from school each day. I am constantly looking for ways to keep my students engaged and excited about learning.
It is difficult to incorporate technology into our every day learning using bulky dated laptops. The iPad mini would allow me to incorporate technology in my Guided Reading lessons which I currently cannot do if the students are using the laptops. My students love to learn through videos, games, and digital manipulatives. We love sight word videos, BrainPop Jr, Scholastic News, and rhymes.
I also have students whose behavioral plans require "breaks". Using a computer is a popular choice; however, the computers are slow and not always available. The iPad would be a much more efficient choice, if we had one.
Please help us by donating to our classroom and helping us reach our goal!
My class of 17 students shares 5 slow and unreliable laptops.
We are required to use an online Lexia Core 5 and Symphony Math, which are both online programs. To get students on these programs, the laptops are constantly in use by my students during Guided Reading and Math Centers. I would love to be able to use the iPad mini during Guided reading to show videos, play learning games, and practice sight words. Right now, I can't do that.
