Mrs. Garcia from Tampa FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Young Readers Blossom!

My students need technology, such as the Tag Reading System with storage cases and books, to help them hone their reading skills.

My Students

Help us learn to read! Our classroom consists of 16 five-year-olds who are all struggling readers. We are eager to read, but we lack the necessary phonemic awareness & phonics skills. The Tag system will help us as it gives us a chance to see, hear and read the words all at the same time.

The majority of my little learners live in the nearby housing projects and come from homes where they don't have many opportunities to flourish.

Though they face many obstacles on a daily basis, they are such an inspiring bunch, determined to do their best and to learn in school.

My Project

The Tag learning system would provide my kindergartners with a phenomenal daily reading experience. Not only would it expose them to cutting-edge literacy technology, but it can also help them learn and build their phonetic skills, reading comprehension skills and much more! In addition, Tag Reading System can also give students a chance to build their confidence by allowing them to read on their own. They will be able to read through the book and explore the pictures without any help. They will be able to guess the words they do not know, or use the Tag Reader to get help. This will help them with learning and memorization of words, building their reading skills even more. The Tag Systems would be utilized daily in small group literacy centers where students work in small groups on various reading-based activities. These engaging tools would keep students learning and focused throughout their entire center time block. A truly fantastic daily learning experience!

A donation to this classroom would make such an incredible difference in the reading lives of 16 amazing little learners.

Kindergarten is the foundation of a child’s education—without learning the necessary skills here, a student can struggle throughout the rest of his/her life. Your generous donation would provide some very deserving kids with the opportunity to hone crucial reading skills while having a great time. Help us learn to read so that we can become successful students for life!
