Ms. Price from Charlestown MA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

On Fire for Reading!

My students need a Fire HD 6 Kids Edition, headphones, and a memory card to help struggling readers engage with text, limit distractions, and store lots of stories!

My Students

"All children are gifted. They just open their gifts at different times." - Author Unknown A typical day in my classroom consists of lessons in mathematics, reading, writing, social emotional skills, and enrichment periods.

This year, my classroom consists of seven third grade boys with special needs that vary from dyslexia to communication disorders to ADHD.

All my boys come from low-income homes and qualify for free breakfast and lunch here at school. Despite their disabilities, my students come to school excited and eager to learn every day.

My Project

This tablet will help students each and every day. Students will be able to listen to grade-level books on the Fire that they would not necessarily otherwise have access to, due to their low reading levels. The Fire can be used year after year, so it will benefit many third graders! This Fire comes with a free one-year subscription of Amazon Free Time Unlimited, so not only can my students use it to read, they can also use it to practice math skills with educational apps like PBS.

Do you remember how nice it was having someone read to you when you were in elementary school?

The Fire Kids Edition will be like having an extra teacher in the classroom to read to students who struggle to decode. My students only have computers as a special class once a week, so any additional technology in the classroom will help keep students engaged and focused.
