Ms. Flores from Los Angeles CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mini iPad= Big Learning!

My students need an iPad Mini to enhance their reading skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students live in an impoverished area of South Los Angeles. All of my students come from low-income families. We are a Title I school where one hundred percent of our students receive free meals. My students always try their best at everything and anything despite the challenges that they face in their daily lives.

They are already not expected to have it as easy as others, but we learn that with hard work and consistency, they can be "unique" or different from the rest.

My students are so eager to learn that it makes coming to work easy!

My Project

Having an iPad mini for our classroom will help enhance my students' reading abilities. We only have four classroom computers that are up and working for my 33 children right now. The children will use age-appropriate websites and programs to play games and complete lessons that will help in aiding him or her in their reading weaknesses.

The iPad for our room will help strengthen our children's literacy needs!

We all know that technology is a child's best friend this day and time. Our children do not have as much access to technology as other children from higher socioeconomic homes. Having access to this fun and innovative tablet can only benefit our literacy challenges.
