Mrs. Tanis from Ft Lauderdale FL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Readers, Writers and Researchers!

My Students

My students are constantly learning and hungry for new materials to learn from. I love to switch things up to keep the classroom interesting and the kids engaged. The materials I have requested will do just that and take them even farther in their learning.

I teach 15 eager five and six years old at an IB world magnet school where learning through inquiry is our focus.

They are very independent and come to school excited to learn every day, always wanting to know more. We encourage students to be global learners and also to take control of their own learning. The school is a Title I school, which means at least 50% of the students receive free or reduced price lunch.

My Project

Our class will be able to use the iPad, along with the one we already have, to use reading and math apps, as well as to do research. Our technology is very outdated and doesn't always work, so another piece of updated technology would be beneficial for the children. Many of the students are reading above grade level and are ready to use new tools to make words. The blends, word family and letter beads will all offer opportunities for the children to explore words on their own while they are working independently during the reading block. The sheet protectors will be used in their portfolios that follow them all the way to 5th grade. The sheet protectors are a nice way to display student work without the work getting damaged. With school funds low this year, we are short on sheet protectors for our portfolios.

All of the materials will change my students' lives for the better because they will help them learn more.

The iPad will improve the lack of working technology in our classroom, while the building words tools will help the children become better readers and writers. The sheet protectors will be a wonderful way for students' to display their work in their portfolios.
