Mr. Lawson from Dallas TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Set Our Learning on Fire!

My students need 10 Amazon Fire tablets to practice math skills on websites such as Zearn, Prodigy, and Imagine Math. This will allow me to productively group students into smaller groups for face to face instruction.

My Students

Have you ever noticed how captivated young children are when they have a piece of technology near them?

They are preparing themselves to solve problems that the world doesn't even have yet!

Problem solving is what the next generation needs, and they have the desire to be just that. We, teachers, need to fuel that and position our students to become innovative thinkers for the next generation.

100% of my students are economically disadvantaged and come from several trailer parks around the school.

My Project

Having the Fire tablets will allow me to have groups of students staying engaged with math concepts while not being in front of the teacher.

This will allow me to meet more effectively with smaller groups of students, which maximizes the opportunity to identify student strengths and weaknesses.

Students will be able to practice independently the skills and strategies we practice as a group. Students will feel more successful and love playing games or earning badges while doing so.

Having the tablets will also enable other opportunities for our class that were unavailable before. The tablets will be available for class research during Social Studies or Writing assignments. They can be tools to help students complete classroom Escape Rooms, and also serve as dictionaries students can use during district assessments.
