2nd Graders Soaring Into Technology

My Students

I am a second grade teacher in a school full of students who are energetic and have high expectations for themselves. Our school is in the heart of the city of Milwaukee and provides high expectations and rigor for students who come from low income homes and neighborhoods that are not expected to flourish.

My second graders financially may not have much but they are rich in high hopes and dreams.

Our students have already shown growth in their reading proficiency and are continuously looking for new ways to excel. Their goal is not to only read at a second grade level, but to comprehend and use various strategies to read multiple types of text, despite the level.

My Project

Our school struggles with funding necessary resources for students learning and engagement. These chromebooks will provide the opportunity for students to continue focusing on their goals of reading proficiency, fluency, and comprehension. There are several websites and apps that help promote learning growth that students will be able to access with the funded chromebooks.

Funding this project gives students access to websites like HeadSprout, Compasslearning, and Teachyourmonstertoread, which provide intense practice in phonics skills, fluency and reading comprehension.

These websites are engaging and allow students to work productively and independently while I am able to work in small groups to provide intervention. Funding this project to give students chromebooks will help us reach our reading goals so much faster.
