Learning With Leap Pads!

My students need Leapfrogs Learning Pads to achieve success in learning.

  • $565 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is ready to play?" They reply, "We are!" We play to learn and I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

Young children are avid STEM investigators, eager to explore and invent.

Leading economists concur that high-quality early education makes dollars and sense; an analysis of the economic impact of the Apalachicola Pre-K program showed a 7% to 10% per year return on investment based on increased school and career achievement.

I teach at a Title I school in Florida where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

My students need interactive learning games to help learn letters, shapes, colors, and numbers. We play in centers every day and the addition of learning pads will help students achieve success in reading. The leap pad has the ability to read to the students while they follow along. I have a wide range of readers and from all different levels. Audiobooks are a less intimidating and fun way to learn how to read.

We love to learn and play, leap pads provide an excellent way for students to find success.

We are getting ready to go to kindergarten while still focusing on fun.
