Mrs. Salley from Urbana MO is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Read Around the World!

Help me give my students a set of Amazon Fire Tablets to use in groups and individually to drive their desire for learning with access to e-book libraries and learning activities far and above what they currently have!

My Students

Hello! My students come from a rural farming community and are eager, enthusiastic children ready to have new experiences. Internet connections are difficult to access for many of them, so the more opportunities we can offer through the school district, the more students will benefit! We are looking for any support we can get to create engaging, cutting-edge learning opportunities for our students!

My Project

First grade is the ground level for reading foundations! We spark the love of learning and reading by teaching students to learn the tools they receive in Kindergarten. By providing them with tablets, they will gain access to e-books and libraries around the world which will multiply the books they have access to exponentially! They will gain resources that are difficult to build in a small town school with limited funding. They get most of their learning experiences and exposure to the world outside of their local community right here in our classrooms. With these tablets they will be able to access the world around them from within our classroom! They will also get to play games that will inspire learning in mathematics, science, social studies, problem solving and more! This tool will be multi-dimensional!
