Mrs. English from Hope Mills NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Want to Read!

Help me give my students Amazon's Kindle and Fire tablets! Most ELA teachers are receiving class sets of laptops this year that the kids in regular ed ELA can use... except the AIG (academically and intellectually gifted) students!

My Students

My students are all academically and intellectually gifted middle schoolers. I love their senses of humor, their love of literature and their warms hearts. Some of my kids read at a post high school level and there are NO physical books in our library to accommodate them.

I have bookworms, gamers, fan-fiction fans, athletes, tournament fishing contest participants, writers, poets, and fashionistas!

They are as individual as snowflakes and love a good challenge. Therefore, we decided to try a Donors Choose "challenge" to get the thing we have the most heartfelt need and desire for: MORE WAYS TO READ!

My Project

My academically and intellectually gifted students have strong talents and abilities in the area of English language arts. I have kids in my classes that read a book a week if not more! Our school library has access to e-books but sadly we do not have a lot of access to read them. Regular ed ELA teachers are receiving class sets of laptops this year but those of us in Exceptional Children are not. It's sad and a shame that we cannot afford to outfit our most talented students with the means to strengthen their gifts so this is the reason I am requesting Amazon Kindles and Fire Tablets.

My students who read more show astounding increases in their Lexile scores.

I know I could engage more reading and gain more ground with my special ladies and gentlemen if they could access e-books only available on computers or E-Readers whenever they wished! It would be a dream come true to them and their teacher!
