Ms. Ashley Brown from Friars Point MS is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPads for Readers

My students need iPads in kindergarten because they struggle with using Chromebooks (because they have no mice). I want to use iPads to help my new kindergartners work on their writing form, alphabets, and numbers.

My Students

My students are beautiful. They are just coming into their own. Just learning what they like and don't like. Reading isn't pushed in many of their homes. So we are combating that at FPES by pushing reading in a multitude of ways.

In my library, they are exploring new and old books.

They are reading online through our MyOn program. We are starting a reading club to help expose them to different genres. They're learning how libraries work i.e. call numbers, Dewey Decimal system, etc. We even play games to see how well they can alphabetize books. We have a book recommendations board where kids suggest books to their classmates. We are starting an Adopt-A-Shelf program where kids compete each week to have their shelves alphabetized correctly and neatly. We also do a question of the week related to a book or idea we're contemplating in the library. In addition, we do book talks, previews, etc.

Everyday, they find something new in the library and give us new ways to change and make this school a better place.

My Project

My kindergarteners love technology. Unfortunately they have a hard time manipulating the Chromebooks our district purchased. I want to use the iPads to help them learn to count, learn their alphabet, and eventually facilitate reading. We could use so many apps like ABCY, starfall, MyOn and a host of other programs to help them go from seeing letters to seeing words to finally imagining what they read! Reading, in my opinion, is the difference between poverty and wealth. Regardless of actual money in the bank, a kid that can read can go anywhere and that's what I want for my SUPER READERS in training!
