Donors Choose.

First thing I see in my inbox this morning is this message...

"Hi Ms. M,
Good news! DonorsChoose.org staff and volunteers have completed the screening process for iPod Therefore I Can... Learn English!. Your project is now live on our website and ready to be funded! You can find your project here."

Guess what I asked for? That's right, 2 iPods for my classroom.
I am very eager to integrate more technology into my classroom. I do love tech so much. I adore my projector, document camera, & the Mobi tablet, I recently posted about. My students love all the tech too. I was very sad when we lost our only computer. I got a Leap Pad from a fellow teacher, but it's just not the same. I think that my tatter tots will be thrilled when they see these little babies.

I was super excited. You see I've known about Donors Choose for sometime now, but never applied. Something always came up & I just never got to it. However, this weekend I finally did it. I sat down & dedicated some time to signing on & completing my project proposal.

What I would like is for you to give me feed back on what I wrote up. I realize that I can't go back & change what I wrote, but I can always make my next project better.

So please visit my project, & tell me what you think. It's called...

iPod Therefore I Can... Learn English! 

Oh & if you REALLY want to be kind, please spread the word. 

Thanks a million.

Ms. M

  4. Congratulations! Your class will love these. Can't wait to read a post about use apps for ELL learners. Are they WiFi? If so, try BrainPopESL. I know there is a Brain Pop App.

  5. Thanks ladies.

  6. Donors Choose has been a wonderful resource for my class as well. I'm hope you get funded. I'd love to hear about how your class uses the ipods.
