Ms. Garcia from Napa CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Set our Reading on Fire with a Kindle Fire!

My students need Kindle Fire tablets to better access the e-book library for our newly adopted English Language Arts curriculum. These Kindle Fire tablets will allow students to access e-book readers at their reading level.

My Students

I am the lucky teacher of an amazing third grade class in a Title I school. My students are predominantly low socioeconomic, English language learners. They are amazing children and eager to do their best in school despite the challenges they may face at home and school.

My goal as their teacher is to bring as many resources into my classroom as I can to help my students achieve their goals.

My students love to read, they love to learn about animals and inventions. They want to be biologists, inventors, bakers, teachers, police officers, astronauts and more. I want to give them access to all of these futures by providing the tools they need to be life long learners.

My Project

Bringing Kindle Fire tablets into my classroom will allow my students to access leveled reader e-books at their reading levels. Some students are reading outside the grade level but I don't have access to those physical books. Having a Kindle Fire will open up the full leveled reader e-book library to my students.

Our new English Language Arts curriculum has an amazing e-book library that I want my students to have access to.

I look forward to seeing my students discover the joys of reading and all that reading has to offer when they can enjoy books at their level.
