I am a first year teacher and am working to build a print-rich classroom environment for my students. I am hoping to get funding to help with literacy by building a print and digital library. Ideally, I would love to get enough funding to purchase some iPod shuffles for my students to listen to audio versions of books in order to bolster their reading ability, fluency, and vocabulary. I am also interested in adding a digital microscope and some student microscopes to our inventory to facilitate a more hands-on approach to our studies in the process of scientific inquiry. Any donation, no matter how small, will help us in reaching this goal and will aid me in delivering the best instruction possible. Thank you!
