Mrs. Cunningham from Spokane WA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We are Techy Kids Living in a Techy World!

My students need headphones for our computers and iPads. They would also benefit from less tangly wires...wireless mice for the desktops. Videos and picture presentations take up a lot of space...external hard drive to the rescue!

My Students

My students are creative, caring, amazing learners. They approach every day with wonder and enthusiasm. It is my distinct pleasure and awesome responsibility to guide them in the first year of their educational journey.

My students are all unique and have unique needs.

My job as their teacher is to be creative, resourceful and diligent in meeting all of those needs. Sometimes, the materials needed to meet those needs are not readily available to us for a multitude of reasons. For this reason, we so appreciate support from donors like you!

My Project

I am extremely fortunate to have iPads in my classroom. They are used for independent practice in both math and reading, group project learning, visual literacy and our listening station. To use these devices to their fullest potential, we need headphones. Group projects involving videos and pictures take up a lot of space on my teacher computer and are hard to share with other machines. An external hard drive will solve that problem. At our desktop computer station, there are a lot of cords that often get tangled. My kinders are trying to learn to use a mouse and they end up fighting with the cord. Wireless mice will solve that problem. Thank you!
