High Needs Primary School iPad Mini for Literacy Through Music!

My students need an iPad mini for literacy, for assessment, for music, and for video presentations.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students love to move! The music classroom is where Pre-K through 2nd-grade students have the opportunity to get out of their chairs and have some fun! My students are always looking for ways we can keep class interesting and get moving! We dance, sing, play instruments, and creatively move to music.

I serve an extremely high-needs community that is over 75% free and reduced-price lunch and full of English Language Learners.

They love to learn, and I love to help them become great citizens, as well as excellent musicians. Please consider helping us gain all the resources necessary for an excellent music classroom!

My Project

My primary music students love to learn songs! I teach with only the best, time-tested folk songs from American and all over the world. Sometimes, my ESL students and students who are behind academically have trouble learning our songs just by repetition. It would be much better since I teach with us in a big circle on the floor if I had an iPad Mini to create slideshow presentations of the lyrics to our songs so that I could show the students the words while we learn a song.

While literacy through folk music learning is the number one priority for this project, I can also use this teacher iPad for video assessment, for sharing excellent class singing and singing game playing with other classes, and for keeping track of everything in the music classroom with the iDoceo app (seating charts, assessment, turn-taking, etc.).

This iPad mini would be my go-to piece of technology, which is why I am requesting a hand strap case, as well. I would be able to easily take my class outside on nice days since all of my music could also be stored on this iPad and since I already have a small but very powerful Bluetooth speaker that was funded through Donorschoose (thank you for that, donors!!).
