Mrs. Rolo from Hopedale MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A MacBook Air for Thirsty Minds

My students need technology! The Macbook would allow me to prep both in/out of school, communicate with parents, write both regular and special education report while providing students with more technology in the classroom.

My Students

The Rolo Gang was given for our love of the The Peanuts. Our classroom is a place where students are like sponges for learning; they have infectious smiles and silly stories to make us laugh. Their sense of pride comes from their ability to persevere through new challenges, in all areas of standard based learning.

"Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or in the same way." - George Evans.

We are located in a small Massachusetts Utopian town. The Rolo Gang is a self-contained first grade classroom, in a public school, where 19 peanuts come to learn each day with the willingness to succeed.

So, when you are deciding if you will fund this project, please consider how something so small can absolutely change the learning environment for all children.

My Project

My students and I need a MacBook Air to allow us access to the latest software, educational apps, and videos in the areas of math, literacy and science.

We live in a world of technology, and young learners are motivated by educational and engaging apps.

First graders learn by watching, listening, moving and by interactive activities in the classroom. This MacBook Air would be used for daily preview/review instruction, early intervention, writing progress reports, report cards, educational plans, and maintaining our class website throughout the school year.

It will facilitate and enhance the learning of all my visual and auditory learners.
