Mrs. Silvestry from Brooklyn NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My Pre-K class consists of 18 wonderful, inquisitive, and sweet children. Every day the children loved to come to school to learn and socialize!

Unfortunately, it is no longer safe to go to a physical classroom.

My young students still however, need to keep connected to each other and to me, their teacher. They still need to learn important concepts. I am hoping I can make that happen in the best possible way through the use of technology through our remote learning classroom.

My Project

When schools closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic, teachers had to very quickly learn how to teach remotely. I personally had never taught online and it has been quite a process to learn how to do so. I had to learn new programs to use and new ways to teach my students. I quickly realized I was not properly set up at home with materials and supplies to do this in the best way possible.

In this time of distance, I want to stay connected to my students!

I would greatly appreciate some technology and supplies to help me connect to my students! I need a document camera so they can see the materials I am teaching concepts with. I need a tripod for videotaping myself reading books so they can still have my personal touch to reading stories while at home and unable to physically be with me. I need a white board to video myself teaching mini lessons so they have instruction before engaging in uploaded assignments.

I thank you in advance for any help you can give in this time of need! I greatly appreciate any donation to help me connect to my students remotely.
