Mrs. Massey from Centerville IA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Help Ourselves!

My students need a one year subscription to the Fluency Tutor for Google website and study carrels to allow for better recording at their desks, allowing them to self-assess and become better readers.

My Students

Despite some of the challenges my students face, they are resilient and eager to learn. Many students at my school live in poverty, having to move frequently due to financial struggles or difficult family situations.

Our county is one of the least "healthy" in the state, based on published indicators, which of course, increases their risk factors.

In my class, we focus on using a Growth Mindset, and changing our thinking to promote success. Students are increasing their persistence on challenging tasks, and verbalizing that making mistakes is okay, because it's how we grow and learn.

My Project

Fluency Tutor helps students of all ages and ability levels become more avid, engaged and confident readers. What’s more, it gives educators a clear picture of every child’s reading attainment and progress over time. My students love using the website Fluency Tutor for Google.

This easy-to-use app lets students record themselves reading aloud on their laptop, Chromebook or tablet, away from the stress and embarrassment of reading in a classroom environment.

The site syncs with Google Classroom, so we are truly maximizing our 21st Century learning skills at the same time.

Students love this site and I love that they are so engaged in evaluating their reading. We have only had a free-trial, but the students have asked to keep it. If I am able to get a subscription to this dynamic site, we will be able to continue to use all the resources available on it.
