My Students

Do you remember when computers was first in the classroom how everyone was excited? My students still get excited every time they see a computer because my students do not have any access to computers but through the school.

I currently teach 22, 1st grade students at a Title 1 school.

The majority of my students come from low-income families and are second language learners. A large amount of the students (85%) also qualify for free/reduced lunches and breakfast. Many of my students do not have a computer at home. Most of my students families just have enough to get by day by day.

My Project

I am asking for a HP all in one computer and 4 keyboards for my students to use. The computer 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 HP all in one computer will give my students the opportunity to experience technology in the classroom. They will be able to explore educational games, activities and presentations. This will benefit all of my students, especially my kinesthetic learners. This would provide all of my students with an amazing learning opportunity.

This project would change my students lives for the better by providing them unforgettable learning experiences, and exposing them to the wonderful current advancements in the field of technology.

This will be the only time a majority of my students will be exposed to something like this. This will create powerful, learning experiences for all of my students, myself included, for this year and many years to come. This will be used to enforce the achievement of all of my students.
