Reserve Primary kindergarten teacher receives funding for iPad project

Reserve Primary kindergarten teacher Angela Urso recently earned more than $2,000 in funding at DonorsChoose.org for her classroom project “iMagine the Possibilities with iPad Minis.”

The funding purchased six iPad mini devices and cases for Ms. Urso’s classroom to be used by her kindergarten students.

DonorsChoose.org is a free nonprofit website where teachers can receive funding for student resources. Donors can choose between the projects listed on the site, and for Ms. Urso’s project, DonorsChoose.org matched all donations in the first week of the funding drive because of the technology aspect of the project.

Ms. Urso plans to use the devices with students in small groups as they rotate through various activity stations to work on guided reading or math concepts.

“I was super excited,” said Ms. Urso about receiving the funding. “We have some iPad carts in the school, but this will be a classroom set I can use to help reinforce reading, writing and math skills.”
