Ms. Witmer from Ruther Glen VA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Is Hot, Hot, Hot With Amazon Fire 7!

My students need 6 Amazon Fire 7's to allow them to have access to endless reading and listening opportunities in my classroom. They also need protective cases to help them take responsibility for their best care!

My Students

The students in my classroom are full of wonder, joy, and tons of imagination! Everyday they inspire me to lead them on an educational adventure; building a strong foundation and a well-rooted love for learning.

"Children with greater access to books and other print materials express more enjoyment of books, reading, and academics." According to the Children’s Access to Print Material and Education Related Outcomes.

My students love to get caught up in an exciting story that can transport them to outer space, under the sea, or even Neverland! They are truly a wonderful group of children who work, play, and learn together in my classroom family!

My Project

Each day, my students are actively engaged in Literacy Stations where they are developing their phonological awareness skills to help them become strong readers. They work on identifying the beginning sounds, ending sounds, and vowel patterns in words, sight words, word families, reading, and writing skills. With the addition of Amazon Fire 7 tablets to our classroom, my students will have access to countless reading resources to give them engaging hands-on learning experiences to build their educational foundation.

Teaching kids to read is a team effort.

Together as educators, parents, and community members we can provide meaningful learning experiences that will help shape the future for these children. Thank you!
