One iPad Mini at a Time

My students need an iPad mini and protective shield to add to our small group work center.

My Students

While learning sight words, counting, and other necessary skills, my kindergarten students need more resources to support these goals.

My students come into school every day eager to learn something new.

We are one of five kindergarten classrooms in a Title I school with close to 600 students. I currently have 17 students. The majority of my students are English Language Learners who need additional materials to support learning new vocabulary and skills simultaneously. Many people have said that our school is a hidden treasure and for that reason it can be difficult to locate. Because we are tucked into a neighborhood, we do not receive as much community support to fund classroom needs as we need. Many of our teachers purchase items independently or seek funding for materials.

My Project

Your donation will be used to purchase an iPad mini for my 17 kindergarten students. The mini will give my students access to different websites and apps. They will access the school's subscriptions to Raz-Kids, BrainPop, and other district-purchased digital resources like PebbleGo. Raz-Kids works on different reading skills, BrainPop delivers short and fun video clips on various science and social studies topics. PebbleGo covers various science and social studies topics in short colorful e-books that can read to the student as well as short video clips. Handwriting, rhyming, reading, writing, math, science, and social studies apps will be used for a review and practice of skills. All of these learning opportunities offer interactive features to encourage and support the students' growth. For my English Language Learners, the availability of these interactive features will support their specific learning goals.

Your donation gives my students another opportunity to learn from digital resources as an alternative mode of learning.

Thank you for considering my project as you decide which project to support.
