Taking Charge of Our Reading

My students need a charging station for their Kindle Fires and headphones to listen to book quizzes being read to them.

My Students

My students make up the third grade ICT class in a high poverty school in Washington Heights. Despite the fact that almost 90% of the students in my school are from low income families, my class is made up of an amazing group of children who love to learn. These children love school. They are inquisitive, creative, and very enthusiastic. They absolutely love reading, and many of them are approaching grade level and some are even reading above grade level. I can't wait to watch them grow even more this year!

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! The charging station will be placed in the front on top of our book shelf to charge of classroom kindle fires. The headphones will go neatly organized in a book basket right next to them.

We will use these materials to aide us in the process of becoming life-long writers.

As the teacher, I have done extensive research and reading on technology in the classroom and how it can boost reading levels and interest in reading. Now that we've got the tech, we need a way to charge it! I truly need your support to make this a reality. Thanks!
