Mrs. Chambers from Plainfield IN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten Kindles!

My students need 2 Kindle Fires! We need ways to easily access technology in a way that lets each student learn at their own level!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Kindergartners need to learn how to use technology too! After all, they ARE the future! We have literacy stations in which students get into small group and practice skills based on their needs. Kindle Fires would be a great tool to expose students to technology and practice individual skills..

I teach at an urban school in which many of my students come from single parent homes, live in apartments, and have free and reduced lunch.

Being kindergartners, they are new to school and are very excited to learn and read! They learn so quickly but just need the resources to do so. Their parent(s) are often not able to support their child's learning with technology at home (computers, tablets, kindles, ipads). Therefore, it is up to the teachers to provide exposure to this type of technology. Unfortunately, school funding does not provide this for us.

My Project

We need 2 Kindle Fires to give my kindergarten students practice using technology and engage them in learning. Students will practice letters, sounds, sight words, reading, numbers, counting and other reading and math skills. The Kindles will give them the opportunity to practice skills based on individual needs and give them exposure to 21st century technology.

Technology is so important in our society and we need to expose young children to it so they are successful with it in the "real world." These Kindle Fires will truly help engage my students in learning and assist in practicing skills in the classroom.
