Ms. Collura from Pinole CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keep on Leaping into Learning

My students need 14 LeapPad2 Power Learning Tablets, 11 Gel Skins (we already have 3 extras), 14 headphones, and a locking tablet charging cart.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We live in a world shaped by technology, and yet the computers in my classroom are more than twice as old as my students.

My first graders were born into the digital age.

They are fascinated by anything having to do with technology. I would like to be able to provide access for my students to all of the amazing educational resources available on the LeapPad2 Power Learning Tablets, from science to math to social studies to reading.

My Project

Last year, my class received ten LeapPad Learning Tablets through the generosity of DonorsChoose. This year, I am requesting fourteen additional LeapPad Learning Tablets, along with a secure tablet charging cart, so that all of my students will have access to this resource. Even those students who often have difficulty focusing are highly motivated to stay on task when technology is involved. With LeapPad Learning Tablets, my students will be able to access math, science, social studies, and reading content in a format that is engaging and fun.

The new Common Core State Standards require students to be technologically literate.

This project will enable me to utilize technology in a way that will enhance my lessons in every subject area, while placing my students on the path to college and career readiness.
