IPads For 1st grade Centers

My students need 2 new IPads as a center to motivate learning!

My Students

Remember a time when classroom learning was sitting in a wooden chair at a table or desk all day long?.. Now imagine a classroom that sings spelling, dances to grammar and rotates around the room for reading! Learning is fun in our 1st grade room!

Life in a small, rural town is great!

I can't walk into the grocery store without seeing one of my past or present students and I love that! Our school is a Title 1 school with most students participating in free or reduced lunch. We have the basic tools for learning, but don't have the budget for such things as classroom IPads. Families here love their kids and work hard to provide for them. Regardless of financial status, each parent sends us the BEST that they have to offer! It's our job to take their BEST and combine it with our best and create a student that loves to learn! We need to create students that will someday invest in society, what we invested in them today! Life in a small town can be the best, with your help!

My Project

If we receive these IPads, they will be used every day. The students will be so excited to use them in centers. Through the thousands of apps available, they will be able to play phonics games, work on their spelling and ultimately learn how to read better! It will show our students that we really do want to give them the best education we can!

Thank you for taking time to read about our project!

I hope you will be greatly blessed for your gracious gift! I look forward to sharing with you what a difference you made in our classroom!
