Mrs. Lichtenstein from Philadelphia PA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Teaching with Technology

My students need a tablet and an iPad since they are the future. I have no technology in my classroom and this would help a lot!

My Students

I want my students to get the best education possible since they are our future. I am big believer in being very hands-on. In my classroom, there is no technology. Having an Ipad and a tablet would allow my students to learn things and see things that they would otherwise not have the opportunity to.

Amazing, eager, curious, inquisitive, hands-on learners is how I would describe my 30 kindergarten students.

In my classroom I am a big believer of incorporating technology and different learning styles into all lessons so my students can reach their full potential in a way that is comfortable and interesting to them. However, in my classroom there is no technology. The use of an iPad and tablet would give my students the opportunity to look at material in a different way, explore educational videos and sites. They are our future and I want them to be prepared. I want nothing more than to see my students succeed. Their faces would be priceless if they saw these items in the classroom for them to use during center and exploration time. Funding this project would open up a new door of learning. There are so many amazing educational apps and programs that my students would be able to learn and grow from.

My Project

There is no technology in my classroom. My students would be using the Ipad and tablet for center time, guided reading, learning how to read and for my ESOL children- a picture program would be amazing! My students will learn letters, shapes, how to read using a hands-on approach. I believe that these resources will enhance the quality of learning in the classroom.

This project will improve my classroom by giving my students the use of technology that they need and deserve.

Not only will they learn fundamental skills but they will also be able to listen to books and see the pictures as well on the iPad/tablet. I want the best for my students. These children are my world and to watch them be able to have technology in the classroom to enhance their learning would mean the absolute world to me as well as to them.
