Mrs. Sawyer from Alton IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPads for All! & All for iPads!

My Students

Hi! I currently teach a blended class of kindergarten and first grade students. The students in my classroom are students who are considered to have a communication delay.These students work hard each day. I currently co-teach with a speech therapist to provide the students the best possible immersion in language to close the gap.

My students are such great kids!

We work hard each day to provide unique learning situations geared towards student interests and communication needs. Because of our low income situation, many of our students lack basic need items. We work hard every day to give kids the best possible educational environment.

My Project

This iPad will make a world of difference in the educational lives of my students. The iPad would be so greatly appreciated by the students here at school. For some kids this is the only place where they have access to an iPad. We all know kids love to learn with technology.

My students are great kiddos and they are so eager to learn!

With a new up to date iPad, we could download educational apps for learning letter/sound recognition and other phonetic skills. We can download stories to read. I can also use the tablets to help monitor students' progress through our reading program. Our current tablets are so out of date that they no longer support our reading program.
