Mrs. McPhail from Fayetteville NC is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Power My Learning

My students need AA batteries for the Leap Pad items that we have in our classroom. They will be using the Leap Pad items to learn letter names, sounds and to read.

My Students

My students are sweet, silly, loving and eager to learn. I have an almost equal amount of boys and girls.

My students are little sponges that soak up everything they experience.

The majority of my students are from low economic backgrounds and their parents just cannot afford to assist with a lot of things in the classroom.

I love my babies and want to give them every opportunity that I can to grow and to feel confident about themselves

My children are wonderful!

My Project

Batteries will power the Pads which will power our minds!

The rechargeable batteries will be used to power Leap Pad items in the classroom which will be used to aid the students in learning our language.

These Leap Pad items vary from touch pads to reading systems and are another way to keep the children engaged in the learning of our language.

Having these rechargeable batteries and their chargers will help us to cut down on the waste of regular batteries and will allow us to keep the pads going for at least a year. The children will truly enjoy having and using these items the entire year.
