Ms. VanDyke from Newsoms VA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lonely iPads Need Smart Kiddos to Brighten Their Day!

My students need 3 iPads as a way to explore and expand reading and math skills using technology.

  • $1,218 goal

This project expired on August 7, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students come from different backgrounds and life experiences. Each student has their own set of skills and achievements. We come from a rural district where students come from all different types of environments. They are eager and ready to learn each day. They work hard for all of their success even though their struggles are real. The school receives a Title 1 classification. Each one of my students works hard and as a family to achieve success. We strive for greatness and it is my pleasure and honor to be able to encourage and help be a part of their growth.

My Project

These iPads will be used each day during math and literacy activities. Students will be able to use technology to explore new texts that they may not have access to normally. Students will use applications to help them apply their current and prior skills to build strong students.

iPad will not only enhance their environment but address each student on their own academic level.

My students need to have access to different activities in order to grow and succeed in this changing world. They will be able to integrate different apps in our Google classroom. By integrating Google apps as well as other programs, I can track and plan students' progress in phonics and math skills.
