My students need an iPad mini to add to our small group work center.
While learning sight words, counting, and other necessary skills, my kindergarten students need more resources to support these goals.
My students come into school every day eager to learn something new.
We are one of five kindergarten classrooms in a Title I school with close to 600 students. I currently have 18 students. The majority of my students are English Language Learners who need additional materials to support learning new vocabulary and skills simultaneously.
Many people have said that our school is a hidden treasure and for that reason it can be difficult to locate. Because we are tucked into a neighborhood, we do not receive as much community support to fund classroom needs as we need. Many of our teachers purchase items independently or seek funding for materials.
The iPad mini will support the students' goals of reading more than 70 sight words and counting fluently to 100 by the end of the school year. The intermediate goals of knowing letters, letter sounds, counting to 50, and reading common three-letter words such as "The cat and dog sat in the car" will be supported using apps installed on the iPad mini.
Your donation will offer my students a needed item to assist them in learning how to use technology to support their learning goals.
Learning to work with various technological tools will prepare them as we move into a world with newer technology. Thank you for your consideration.
