My Students

Do you want to help improve student literacy rates? Incorporating technology into our classroom is not only doing just that, but it is preparing them for the ever changing climate of learning. You can be part of this!

My fifth grade class is full of inquisitive students.

They have the love of learning and work very well together. Most of our students come from homes that are of low economic status. Students come from three different cities to make our large school. Some students spend more than an hour each way on the school bus. Even with all the hardships and lack of supplies, and technological advances, they still enjoy coming school.

My Project

By adding 2 Kindle Fires and 2 Kindle cases to our classroom, my students will have many more opportunities for learning. I have many students who need additional services to help improve their literacy. As a result, I have incorporated the Daily 5 into my classroom. I need to have listening stations and do not have student computers, CD players, or tape players for them to currently use. The only experience they get with technology is with old computers in a lab one a week for 25 minutes. Often times, we do not even get this opportunity weekly. By bringing the Kindle Fires into our classroom, my students will be able to find research for essays, read ebooks, listen to audio books, and learn more about technology.

By donating, you can change the way students learn.

You can impact their future and their love of learning. We need to prepare the students for the life of using technology ahead of them.
