Learning to Read with iPads!

My students need two iPad minis and protective cases to practice the skills needed to learn how to read.

My Students

My kindergarten students are SO excited to learn how to read!

My classroom is filled with fifteen active and imaginative kindergartners!

Our school serves a diverse population of students and families. Many of my students do not have access to computers outside of the classroom, and I would like to provide them with the opportunity to develop 21st century skills as they learn to read.

My Project

My students will use the iPads during literacy and math centers in order to enrich their learning and tap into their unique learning styles. Not only will they practice important foundational skills in literacy and math, they will also have the opportunity to develop technology skills that they may not be exposed to outside of the classroom.

Donations to this project will improve my classroom immensely!

My students will have the opportunity to practice the skills they need to learn how to read, write, and count. My students are so excited to learn, and iPads would provide them with more frequent opportunities to practice foundational skills.
