My Students

I am a first grade teacher working in New York. We are located in a low-income area, where 98% of the children receive free lunch. I have a wonderful group of students who come to school each day eager to learn.

Many of my students are working far below grade level, and need a lot of help in their basic phonics, math and reading skills.

We have some great programs for the computer, but unfortunately all the children do not get an opportunity to use them. Many of my students do not have a working computer at home or they may not have access to the internet. When they do get a chance at using one of the computers at school, they just love it.

My Project

I am asking for a laptop computer for my students to use. The laptop will give them the opportunity to use the computer to work on the skills that they need the most help including reading, math and phonics. The laptop computer will give my students the opportunity to experience technology in the classroom. With the laptop computer, I will be able to provide them with the programs they need to reach their first grade goals.

Please help us and bring a laptop computer into the classroom for my students to use.

Your donations will make it possible for us to get the help and practice that we need to succeed. Thank you in advance for considering my proposal, and helping us bring a laptop computer into the classroom.
