Ms. DiPreta from Hartford CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindle for Creative Kiddos

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore technology by using the Kindle Fire!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is a room filled with 20 exciting personalities who love to learn and participate throughout the day. Our room is filled with anchor charts and student work. Their love for learning excites me each and everyday. I would love to see them even more successful with the necessary tools to teach them everyday. Our school goal is to prepare our students to be proficient in reading by the end of third grade. I hope to inspire them each day by giving them the necessary materials.

My Project

Help my students become more independent in their learning by holding them accountable for their work! By using the Kindle Fire students will be able to take pictures of their work and upload it on the Seesaw App. They will also be able to use the Kindle Fire to go on educational applications while in their Math and Guided Reading stations.

Give students the opportunity to explore technology on their own.

Some of my students do not have the opportunity to do this at home, I want to make sure when they come to school they gain experiences and have a fun time learning!
