My Students

Are you ever scared you're going to break something? Without cases for our Kindles, my students are careful not to move them, but need reassurance that they won't slip off the table.

I have a large group of almost 30 kindergarten students that are eager to come to school every day and soak up all of the information that they have.

They come from all different backgrounds and are at all different academic levels. They are kind and respectful and try their best in all areas of our day. My school is in a rural area, which means that many of our students come from poverty backgrounds. They don't have access to many of the luxuries that students from suburban or urban areas do. We make the most of what we have, but are always searching for ways to afford students with all the opportunities we can.

My Project

These cases will be used to protect the existing Kindles we have in our classroom. I recently submitted a project for Kindles and cases, but unfortunately the cases were not the correct ones. We are currently using the Kindles that we have without cases, but we are always scared that they may slide off the desk and hit the floor.

These cases will allow my students to use the Kindles we currently have for years to come without fear that they may break if bumped the wrong way.

These Kindles allow for truly differentiated instruction, and we'd like to keep them for a long time. Without the cases, we risk breaking them each and every time they are in use.
