Mrs. Upchurch from Lewiston ME is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tablets For Special Education Students

My students need tablets to help them to learn to read, write, and to learn math.

  • $405 goal

This project expired on January 6, 2015.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I work in a special education classroom with 2 other teachers and between us, we teach 15 children. We would love for our students to have access to technology that will bring them up to grade level learning.

Our students love to learn in our resource room.

These students work hard to learn reading, writing, and math with support. We only get 1 hour a week during non testing times to use computers. This amounts to technology use every few weeks. With these tablets we can extend their learning time and make it more meaningful.

My Project

We envision the students using these tablets to improve their reading, writing, and math abilities. Our students will be able to look at math problems differently through games, hear stories being read from other people, and turn their 2 sentence stories into something much more.

This donation will allow students to approach education through new materials and to get a better understanding of what we are teaching them.

They will use this knowledge to their advantage to help them mainstream into regular education classes.
