Ms. Magnotta from Bronx NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Pre-K Express Themselves Through Music

My students need an iPod Touch device.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember singing all of your favorite songs in Pre-K?

I teach Pre-K to eighteen wonderful children.

Most of these children come from low income families and do not get the opportunity express themselves through music. These children are so fun and fill of life. They love to sing and dance in the classroom.

My Project

The iPod that I am requesting will make it possible for me to download all of the children's favorite songs. They will be able to sing and dance in class as a group or with a partner. We will be able to add songs through out the year. At the end of the school year we will make a cd of all the songs we collected and enjoyed during the course of the year.

You will make is possible for the children to sing and dance to their favorite children's songs through out the year.

Thank you for taking time to read my proposal. Please keep supporting donors choose.

Nearly all students from low‑income households
