Ms. Esparza from Los Angeles CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

CD players are a technology of the past. Nowadays the way to play music is from music files. I would like to incorporate this technology in our classroom.

My students are 5 and 6 year-old children who live in a low socio-economic community.

All my students are English language learners. They are great kids, but many times have to deal with difficult situations in their lives. Though our school may not be located in a great area, we work hard to give our students an inviting place to learn, a chance to experience new and memorable things, and create an opportunity for a better life.

My Project

Music is a big part of a kindergarten class. The wireless speaker I am requesting will allow me to bring more music into the classroom. Currently, if I want to play music for my students, I have to burn the playlist onto a CD. With a wireless speaker, I can play music directly from my Mac or iPad. I will not have bother with connecting chords and wires. I will also be able to show my students videos and connect the sounds to the wireless speaker so that all students can hear clearly. The iPad stand will also make the music more accessible.

Having the wireless speaker will help make our classroom more updated in technology.

Students will enjoy listening to their favorite tunes and poems anywhere in school. The iPad stand will also make using the iPad easier for students to use during their center time.
