Ms. Carrillo from Hobart IN is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Using Technology to Empower Kindergarten Students

My students need interactive software such as Bubble Pop! Math Challenge Game, Alphabet Games, Connect-The-Dots Simple Addition Interactive Games, etc. that they can use with our class Now!Board. This software will help them practice language and math skills.

My Students

There is a touch of technology in everything that we do, and it continues to make our lives more and more convenient. As technology becomes part of our daily lives, students need to integrate technology into their daily lessons. Students need to be able access curriculum through technology.

My classroom consists of a group 29 Kindergarten students with many diverse backgrounds.

The students face many challenges, and many do not have access to technology in the home. The demographic of my school is constantly evolving. They are active learners that enjoy working and learning hands-on as much as possible.

My Project

My students will be able to see their lessons come to life on the interactive board. They will be able to become active participants in their own learning. The interactive software is engaging and that is just what my students need to be involved in their learning. As students play these exciting games on our Now!Board, they get super-fun practice with phonemic awareness skills—from recognizing rhyming words & sorting by syllables to matching up objects by initial sound! Each game also has a variety of interactive features—from friendly characters and exciting animation to kid-pleasing music and sound effects. Each game even provides instant feedback, so children get the reinforcement they need to really master each skill.

By integrating this technology into my classroom, I am certain that my students will be even more successful than I could ever imagine.

My students deserve the best education possible and I am determined to provide that for them. Thank you so much for your support!
