Mr. Browning from Avondale AZ is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tablets for iStations (independent stations)

My students need 2 tablets in their special education classroom so they can have access to websites that will further enrich their reading, writing, and math skills.

My Students

The challenge facing my special education students is learning new concepts such as basic addition and subtraction, while at the same time, finding a strategy to overcome their specific disability.

My students are 2nd through 5th graders who come to school every day and put forth one hundred percent.

They have a drive to read, improve their writing, and do math calculations. One recent accomplishment that my students have celebrated has been to learn the parts of speech. On more than one occasion I have had parents tell me that their child has come home excitedly to inform them what a noun and verb are. In the classroom, my students have taken the information they have learned, and applied it when writing their sentences. In doing so, they have given depth to their sentences and been able to voice their thoughts.

My Project

My students will use these tablets to access websites like khanacademy and computer programs such as Classroom Suite. They require many different learning resources to successfully master the materials that they are learning. These tablets will not only help to accomplish that, but will also enrich their reading, writing, and math skills.

Your donation to this project request will deliver a very useful technology tool to my classroom, bring another learning resource to each lesson, and help a special needs child reach his/her scholastic goals.
