My Students

I teach forty-six eager-to-learn third-grade students in a low socioeconomic school. I team-teach with another third-grade teacher. I teach reading to two third grade classes, in addition to all other subjects (excluding math) to my homeroom. More than half of my class receives free lunch.

My students show up every day excited to be at school and ready to learn.

Unfortunately, many of them do not have traditional learning materials at home that foster learning through hands-on experiences. I need your help updating the materials in my classroom. Due to economic strains, our classrooms are suffering. Without your help, it is impossible for me to purchase these materials.

My Project

Student engagement is an increasing issue in classrooms today. I always look for ways to grab and keep my students' attention, while also increasing academic success. Working in small groups is vital to success in today's classroom. We often use dry erase boards and markers at the small group table. It becomes time-consuming to pass out boards, markers, and erasers. We also have the issue of markers not working. By having LCD tablets, distribution of materials becomes much more efficient. Any electronic device is almost immediately more engaging than non-electronic materials. I will be able to provide extra practice in small groups for my students in a fun, engaging way. This also eliminates the need to waste notebook paper. We can easily work on a few questions, wipe our slate clean, and begin again.

By donating to our project, you will not only help improve student engagement, but also, provide an entertaining way to practice the skills that will ultimately lead to academic success.
