1.) Seltice Elementary ~ Mary Rohlman & Tina Hunter: We are requesting funding for the purchase of an iPad for the purpose of benchmark testing and progress monitoring 1st through 3rd grade students. Seltice Elementary is a school-wide Title building and three times a year we assess all 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students in reading fluency. In addition to benchmark testing, we progress monitor identified Title I students on a weekly basis. Approximate cost of project: $500.00
2.) River City Middle School ~ Beth Dennis: I am looking to purchase a classroom projector and document camera that will facilitate a better classroom experience while enhancing teacher instruction in the following ways:
~ Allow instructor to maximize teaching time with pre-made presentations
~ Aid in the instruction and teaching of technology software
~ Assist in the usage of curricular support materials and videos
Approximate cost of the project: $750.00
3.) West Ridge Elementary ~ Kathy Webster: If our grant is funded, our 4th grade students will be able to create a poetry book containing several different styles of poetry. The students can then share their books with their 1st and 2nd grade reading buddies, and their Life Skills friends. They will conduct poetry reading sessions and facilitate poetry writing sessions as follow ups. They will work with the music teacher to choose music to accompany their poetry. We are requesting funds for blank books (14 pages with hard covers, plastic covers, and line guides.)
Approximate cost of the project: $360.00
4.) Post Falls Middle School ~ Jacob Munyer, Nicole Symons and Kimberly Petersen: For our project, file folder activities will be created for student practice to reinforce learning and retention of concepts. Individual tool bags will be put together for use with the activities. All students will use the supplies to create what is necessary for their own individual learning styles. All of these materials will be used in helping students be successful in math. For example, when geometry concepts are taught, construction paper is needed to create models. Sheet protectors are used with dry-erase markers, so students can practice and erase and practice again. Calculators are necessary in all areas of math due to the diversity of the learner's abilities. We are requesting funds for Expo Markers, Sheet Protectors, Construction Paper, Calculators and Miscellaneous Office Supplies.
Approximate cost of the project: $600.00
