Ms. Harrison from Knoxville TN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need an iPad for interactive games, headphones they can record themselves reading, and a case to keep the iPad safe.
Our school includes a large variety of students from various countries all over the world. One hundred percent of the students at my school receive free or reduced price lunch, and we are a school wide recipient of Title I funds.
One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing the change that my students undergo over the course of the year.
I am fortunate enough to see kids develop ways to express kindness each and every day. They use manners that weren't present in August. I have seen students who loathed reading turn into book lovers. A great part is hearing students say that math is their favorite subject because that was not true for me as a child. My classroom is full of faces and personalities that will impact our future world. As a teacher, I believe it is my job to do everything I can to make sure that impact will be a positive impact.
My students need these materials that will be used all day by at least one student at some point in time. The iPad will be used for interactive tutorials and practice that gives immediate feedback while I am working with other students or small groups. The headphones are used to have students not only be able to hear (as typical headphones), but also allows them to record their reading on an county wide system that then lets me go back and listen to them read so I can measure and problem solve to increase fluency. I can hear them read, even when they have left for the day.
This allows for much more targeted reinforcements when time can be made to critically listen and suggestions given that provide personalized learning.
I am also asking for cases to keep the classroom iPads safe to prolong their life for years and years to come.
