Mrs. Lemponen from Middleport OH is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Our Students Achieve Greatness

My students need iPads and protective cases to motivate them in the classroom. There are many activities and centers in each subject that will help the students become successful with the use of an iPad.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, I see that my students are faced with challenges in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I want to provide my students with positive and meaningful learning experiences.

Many of my students are being raised in single parent households or by their grandparents and receive a free lunch and breakfast due to their socioeconomic status.

These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical".

I want the best for my students and see each of them become successful in life.

My Project

My students need iPads to learn through games and activities that focus on the science, social studies, as well as math at center time. Our students will use these materials as manipulatives to explore their ability through building, drawing, and researching! These activities will be used during Learning Center times throughout the day.

They will be able to use manipulatives through the apps during our whole group and small group instruction.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our third grade classroom by building a stronger scholar.

This will change our students' lives for the better. They will love school and feel success as they have fun learning!
