Ms. Aldridge from Asheville NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology in the Classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is full of loving and imaginative kids. We have created an inclusive preschool classroom meeting the unique needs of all through a play based experience. They love to explore outside, and get messy with paint. Some of my students have learned to write their name while other classmates are learning to hold a pencil. Meeting the diverse needs of my students is a top priority. School is starting in less than a week and we are in need of materials to make the classroom the best it can be.

Help them grow!

My Project

My students are interested in using the classroom iPad for a multitude of functions. They love taking pictures and making videos of their story telling and story acting. They use it for research to expand their knowledge on interesting subjects as well as create dance parties through music. Some students are visual learners and can process information more easily when learning with this way.

Our current class iPad has crashed!

Please, please help us.

Thanks so much, from our classroom to you!
