Kindles Need Protection Too!

My students need to protect their Kindles so that they may continue to learn even if a drop or two happens.

My Students

I teach some of the most wonderful students. My students, or kids as I like to call them, come from one of the tougher neighborhoods in town. The school resides in a low socioeconomic area where most families are living at or below the poverty line. The adults in my kids' lives (I say, adults, as some of my children live with an alternative family member) are doing the best they can to make ends meet, some with jobs and some without. Most of my families are single-parent families, with some living with grandparents due to extenuating circumstances. My kids all receive free lunch and free breakfast daily, and they are part of the backpack buddies program.

Even with these circumstances, my kids come to school each day wanting to learn and wanting to better themselves for the future.

They and the adults in their lives have big hopes and dreams. My kids have dreams of being doctors, bakers, firefighters, police, in the military, teachers, and chefs. They are an eclectic bunch of dreamers, and I only want the best for them and will do what is needed to bridge their achievement gap.

My Project

With my goal of having a 1:1 ratio of students to tech, I want that tech to survive in the hands of Kindergarteners. As careful as they may be and as well intentioned and excited for learning they are, accidents do happen.

Our Kindles need protection for the sometimes overly excited Kinder that are so eager to learn that the Kindle slips and bumps the ground/table/chair, or whatever else may pose as an obstacle.

I want these to last for years to come and for that we need cases with screen covers, and stylus pens so that we can work on grip and manipulation!
