Ms. M. from Baltimore MD is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading by the Fire

My students need tablets to reinforce the differentiated instruction in the classroom. The tablets will help with small groups in mathematics and literacy. Students can also chose to read books on the tablet during independent reading.

My Students

I work with 5th graders who have emotional disabilities. What I love about my students is that dispite their disability, when they build great relationships with their peers and the staff in our program, they demonstrate so much creativity and other intelligences. My students can experience so much more of their intelligence with the proper resources. When engaged in independent work, my students can be easily distracted or become overwhelmed with tasks that may be too challenging for them. When assignments are engaging students can focus better on the task at hand.

My Project

My class is a special education class for students with emotional disabilities housed in a small classroom setting. My students function on various levels in mathematics and reading.

The goal is to allow students to use tablets and improve their reading levels as they explore the applications with preferred reading while supporting their emotional disability.

Students can work independently on their IEP goals. They can also be used in whole group and small group instruction. The device will also give students immediate feedback.

The Fire tablets will help support students' emotional disability by minimizing frustration while keeping them actively engaged in various assigned tasks.
