Help me give my students each a working computer, so they can all access the learning opportunities that are provided to them, like e-books, math games, and fun lessons targeting their specific areas of need.
My fourth grade students are a mixture of monolingual English speakers, monolingual Spanish speakers and bilingual students. This year I have five students who are new to the United States and two who are new to school. I also have students who love to read. They read library books, online, at school and at home.
My students also love to be involved in things like Cheerleading, Student Council, Chess Club, Girl Start (STEM for girls), Art Club, Choir and Soccer Club.
My students are eager participants and love helping their community and their school however they can.
When every student has a working computer, he or she has the ability to work at their own pace and their own level. It is ideal for a classroom like mine that has so many different ability levels and language proficiency.
My Spanish speaking students who are emergent readers will be able to listen to audio books in Spanish as they follow along, reading the highlighted words on the screen .
My dyslexic students and Special Education students can learn using special programs tailored to their specific individualized learning plans. The Gifted and Talented students can use Makey Makeys and Scratch on these computers to create interactive presentations to showcase their learning.
