Ignite Our Knowledge With Kindle Fires!
My students need Kindle Fire Tablets with headphones for educational purposes incorporating reading and math.
I am a teacher in the south side of Chicago. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, oftentimes my students are faced with many challenges both in and outside of the classroom. I believe that I need to provide my students with an environment that taps into their creative minds to produce meaningful learning experiences.
My students are loving, respectful and responsible children who are at the age where academic content and social skills are imperative to their educational experience.
Despite the hardships my students may face on a day-to-day basis, I want them leaving my classroom with a sense of encouragement - to not only believe in themselves, but believe that with hard work, dedication, and perseverance they can be successful.
By donating the Kindle Fires and headphones to my classroom they will be put to use in many ways. Due to lack of technology resources in the classroom, having the use of the Kindle Fires in my classroom will be extremely beneficial. The students will be able to work independently with the tablets to help increase their academic performance.
Most of my students are kinesthetic/visual learners which means they need a lot of manipulatives to fully understand reading and math concepts.
The use of the tablets will engage my students in various reading and math activities to ensure they are mastering different concepts.
Our school provides us with the Connect Ed McGraw-Hill curriculum which allows students to Login to individual accounts to work on skills personalized to each student's needs. The tablets will allow the students to work on specific skills based on their individual needs to increase student performance. The tablets will also be used for different reading and math game apps!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
