Mrs. Absalom from Johnson City TN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Please Protect Our iPads

My students need protective cases for iPads that were recently purchased. I want to protect these beautiful pieces of technology in our tile-floored room full of 6-year-olds!

My Students

I have a fabulous group of first graders who are eager and excited to learn every day. Our school is a Title I school, with 75% of our students receiving free/reduced price lunch. We are surrounded by a vibrant neighborhood community that is very supportive of our educational efforts and helps our students in many ways.

Many of my students do not have access to technology at home, so using computers and iPads in the classroom truly enriches their learning experience.

Integrating technology into our classroom is not only motivating for my students, it also provides an opportunity for them to develop the skills needed to be successful throughout their lives.

My Project

My school was recently able to purchase some iPads for our classroom, moving us even closer to being 1:1. However, they did not come with protective cases. With first grade students moving around in our tile floored classroom, protective cases are an absolute must!

I want so badly to get these new iPads into my students hands, but also be responsible with these wonderful resources.

My students are so anxious to get started and these iPads will provide so much learning and sharing for my kiddos. We just need to get them into protective cases so we can get to work!
