Ms. Ciampi from Palm Beach Gardens FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My New Portable Listening Center!

My students need these iPods so I can download digital books and store them on the iPods for listening and reading. Purchases will assist in guided reading as well.

My Students

"Children who are loved at home, come to school to learn, and children who are not, come to school to be loved." This quote may not pertain to why I am requesting these purchases, but it describes my feelings as a teacher. I am there for my students, whether they need help with math or a hug.

My school is technology based and strives to educate young learners for the 21st century.

Any and all digital resources are always utilized to the best of our abilities. My class gets so excited when I introduce new technology to the room. We have computers and tablets but I am always trying to offer my students cutting edge technology.

My Project

In my classroom, we have over 100 books with Cd's. My students are constantly wasting their precious reading time taking out cd's, loading them into laptops and plugging in their materials. Uploading all our digital resources on these ipods would save many important minutes throughout each day and ultimately allow for additional work time.

The possibilities that these pods will provide are endless.

Curriculum will be more easily enhanced with music, Whitebook's and student recordings. This will absolutely enhance the quality of education in my room.
