Ms. Quesada from Miami FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keeping Up With Kindergarten!

My students need a projector so that they may benefit from the wonderful world of technology through the use of a tablet while surfing the web!

My Students

"You have brains in your head... You have feet in your shoes... You can steer yourself in any direction you choose!" - Dr. Seuss. This is the quote I recite to my students! They can do anything, as long as they put their minds to it!

Our school is located in the wonderful state of Florida!

Our school has a large Hispanic and Latino population. My classroom consists of 36 kindergarteners, in a co-teaching setting. Most of my students are ESOL, Spanish speakers who are in the process of learning the English Language. They are struggling but they are eager to learn and be the best they can be!

My Project

It would be phenomenal if our class had a projector and a tablet! The tablet would be used with the projector to enhance students' learning through the use of technology. Our school has adopted a new Reading and Language Arts series that is available online and is very interactive. All of my 36 students, especially the ESOL students, would definitely benefit from this new series if it were projected on a large screen and visible for all. Besides this, I would be able to use the tablet during our differentiated instruction time in which I meet with a small group of students to work on strengthening any weaknesses they have. My students would be able to learn to read, write and master the English language with these desperately needed resources!

If this project is supported, I am positive that my students' learning will be impacted tremendously!

Not only will they learn with my instruction, but through the use of technology which we all know is the future. The earlier my kindergarteners are exposed to such technology, the better they will become at learning in every subject matter. Please help my kindergarten class!
