My students need the Microsoft Surface touch keyboard and a speaker system to utilize our new Microsoft Surface tablet.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom will be receiving a Microsoft Surface tablet in a few weeks. Unfortunately, the Surface did not come with a keyboard. I am requesting a keyboard for this tablet.
The students in my class are full of energy, inquisitive wonder, and enthusiasm.
They come from various diverse cultures, speak different languages, and many of their families are struggling economically.
The school they attend is in the state of Washington. It is culturally diverse with over 83% of the students receiving free or reduced price lunch, and over 37% English language learners.
Next year all of our state testing will be done on some kind of computer or tablet. I am trying to prepare my second graders, and even my first graders for this assessment.
I want my students to be able to utilize technology in a meaningful way to help prepare them for their future. I want them to have some firsthand knowledge of keyboarding before they have to take the state test in third grade.
The keyboard that I am requesting will allow my students to learn typing skills so they can write their own stories, and to practice research skills on kid appropriate websites.
With your generous donations, my students will gain valuable computer skills that are absolutely necessary for success in the future workforce.
Please help them become proficient in basic word processing skills, and help them to start learning how to research information on the Internet!
