Mrs. Aguilera-Cruz from Houston TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

iPads to the Rescue

My students need reliable technology. iPads will bring a lot of excitement while most will use them to learn English as their second language.

My Students

My class is made up of terrific third graders that come from various parts of the world including Mexico, Central America and Africa. A great percentage of my kids are immigrants and refugees. Unfortunately, most of my students are not reading on grade level, their reading levels range from Kindergarten to Sixth Grade. Regardless of their obstacles they are always eager to learn and explore. My goal as their teacher and advocate is to provide them with the best education regardless of their background.

My Project

My students are English Language Learners and having technology at their fingertips will make learning more meaningful. iPads will provide excitement to my third graders. They will have access to programs to improve their reading skills. I will use them as a literacy station so all of my students will be able to use them. I will specifically use it to monitor their growth in Reading by using The Renaissance Place website. In this website students are able to read a book at their level and then test their comprehension skills. We can’t wait to have iPads in our classroom!
