My Students

Just imagine being able to learn basic skills with the touch of a finger! An iPad Mini would impact learning because it is engaging for young learners.

I teach second grade to very enthusiastic and curious learners.

My students come from diverse backgrounds and have many needs. It is amazing all of the great technology that is available to help even young students with reading and math skills. Unfortunately, many of my students do not have access to a computer much less an iPad Mini. The use of an iPad mini will allow learning to be more interactive and fun.

My Project

I am requesting one iPad Mini to help reinforce reading and math skills. The iPad mini applications will help with letter and sound recognition, counting skills, addition, subtraction, letter/number writing, and much more. The use of technology in an early childhood classroom is very important. The iPad mini will also help my students learn how to use advanced technology. An iPad mini would enhance my students' love for learning and thirst for knowledge. Many of my students do not have any computers, and certainly not an iPad mini, in their homes. Having access to one at school is essential.

An iPad mini will provide a much richer learning environment and aid many more students for years to come.

We really need an iPad mini to provide advanced technology and engage my kids. Please support my project and help my young learners practice their basic skills with a touch of their finger!
