Mrs. Mercer from Bossier City LA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mini Lessons with the iPad Mini

My students need one more iPad mini for our classroom. We use them throughout the day. One of the big things we do with them in the mornings is practice our math facts.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are hungry for more technology in our classroom.

Our class consist of 21 sweet first graders.

These kids come from all backgrounds, from low to high socio-economic groups and military families. We spend a lot of time in the classroom due to hot weather and more technology would help us out during those times.

My Project

With the iPad mini, my students will be able to use the technology to work on math skills, take AR tests and do many other activities. Some other activities include group projects where they will take pictures using the iPads and share them in Google Classroom in order for the entire class to view them.

Another piece of technology will allow our class to be one step closer in creating a classroom for the 21st century learner.

Students should be able to use these items flawlessly, which in turn, will prepare them to be ready for the real world.
