Mrs. Reyes from Candler NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Light a Fire for Literacy!

My students need a Kindle fire for access to digital reading resources. This could also be used as an incentive for students' behavior and to promote literacy.

My Students

In our room, we are trying hard to promote a love for learning. I want those students that have a hard time loving to read to be encouraged to do so through use of technology.

My students are a fun-loving, crazy group of people!

We love to move throughout the day, and we have a great time learning, but they still struggle with a motivation to read. I feel like some students, particularly those that need that extra bit of motivation, would flourish with access to digital texts of virtually unlimited topics.

My Project

I work in a high poverty area, so unfortunately my students do not have access to a ton of resources. With this tablet, my students will be able to access a variety of texts suitable for their reading level. Students that read below grade level can access sites that assist them with their reading.

This will improve my students' ability to read, in particular for those students who are below grade level and need additional support.

I also hope to use this Kindle as an incentive for effort and behavior in the classroom.
