Ms. Michalak from Charlestown MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

I Listen, I Learn!

My students need iPads Minis with cases for a new listening center. The paper holder is to organize the art center and make the paper more accessible for the students.

My Students

"First grade is so much fun!"

This is a common statement coming from kids in first grade!

Even with all of the challenges the school faces, it is still fun.

The first grade class is a diverse group of eager learners who come from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds. The moment they walk through the walls of their city school, there's an expectation that their classroom will provide them with a rigorous yet fun education.

Our school is in a very special city neighborhood. Some students can walk to school while others take a bus from great distances. There is great community support and a school community like no other.

My Project

New iPads will allow me to store all of my books on tape and CD's, into ITUNES. This will make it easier for the students to listen to a variety of books without having to switch the CD's in portable players each week.

Listening to stories is one of our favorite activities!

With iPads my students will be able to choose multiple books each week that they wouldn't have access to otherwise.

A new paper holder for our art center is needed so students have access to different colors and types of paper. Right now it is very hard to access and to see all of the different kinds we have.

The library is our favorite place in the classroom. We have a large number of books of every level and genre. It is always growing! We need book boxes to keep all of the books organized and easily accessible to all students.
