My Students

Technology opens the window that allows children to see the world around them. Technologically advanced kids are prepared for the world. If technology is used in a positive way, students can learn about the world and the wonderful diversity out there.

The students in my class and at my school are full of energy, inquisitive wonder, and enthusiasm.

They come from various diverse cultures, speak different languages, and many of their families are struggling economically. The school they attend is in the state of Washington. It is culturally diversity with over 83% free or reduced lunch and over 40% English Language Learners.

My Project

With the Kindle Fire HD and protective cover that I am requesting my first graders will be exposed to other cultures around the world so they can develop their sense of identity and understand their place in their family, community, town, country, and the world. Our classroom will use the Kindle Fire HD in many ways: to learn about different cultures, to listen and read stories about people from history such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, to learn basic math facts, to learn sight words, and to learn to cooperate and get along with others.

Technology has connected the world.

We can see and speak to people around the world in a matter of seconds. My students need access to technology in order to approach multiculturalism in a positive way. Please choose my project and donate to help my students be more respectful and kind to others.
