My Students

Our school has a warm and positive environment that focuses on student learning. We partner with parents and the community to help best serve our children. We are a PBIS school that focuses on positive behavior interventions. We are an under-resourced school, but love to find ways to get the students what they need for best practice.

This year, I have 19 students.

These students are smart, energetic and eager to learn about all things from animals to heroes and world leaders. During our read-alouds and small group time, they always show me how much information they already know about various topics.

My class loves reading, playing math games and practicing spelling using technology. It always amazes me how quickly they learn to operate different apps and programs on tablets and computers. Currently, we are needing another laptop that students can use. Using the computer is another wonderful way for children to practice at becoming a more fluent reader.

My Project

My First Graders are in need of a new laptop. Our current desktop computer is vintage and many times has issues working. Headphones hardly ever work in the old computer, making reading and Letterland activities difficult.

My "Firsties" will practice reading and math activities on the new laptop.

There are many math and reading sites that are engaging for the students and will help strengthen the skills we are working on in class. The kiddos will be excited to work on a newer, more reliable, computer that works quickly and is headphones capable. As a teacher, it will be nice to have a newer computer and not have the concern of the computer having issues and shutting down during tasks and assessments.

My class will also need to use this laptop to help them complete assessments and i-ready lessons and activities. The students will need to do a quarterly reading and math assessment on the computer and it will direct them to the appropriate lessons and activities.

Thank you for your consideration in helping our classroom get a laptop! We thank you in advance for your generosity and look forward to seeing this project funded.
