Ms. Dennis from Norcross GA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPad, uPad, wePad!

My students need three iPad minis to enhance and increase their time spent with technology in the classroom.

My Students

My classroom has received an iPad and three iPad minis through generous donors here at DonorsChoose.org. We have so enjoyed using the iPads, but it has limited the number of times each week that each students can have a turn with the technology.

I teach a second grade class of twenty-four students, where the majority have a first language that is not English.

Ten of these twenty-three students are currently reading below grade level. To help these students close the gap in their current reading level and where they need to be by the end of the year, we spend a lot of our day listening to reading (to hear readers modeling fluent reading) and working with words (to learn the nuances of the English language). We have a lot of apps on our iPads to support these goals, however with one iPad for every six students to use, their time with the devices is limited.

My Project

These Apple iPad minis, in addition to the iPads we currently have, would enhance the educational lives of my students immediately! We already have a wealth of apps at our disposal, with new ones added frequently, but we could definitely benefit from additional devices to increase the number of students using the technology each day.

Having an additional three iPads in the classroom would mean that every student would be able to have time using the devices every day!

Our Language Arts and Mathematics time would be able to have an additional technology component as well.
