My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school so my students encounter many challenges in their lives. Many of them are being raised by a single parent or grandparent. In some cases, both parents live in the same house and work two jobs and the students still receive free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. This may prevent them, in some cases, from experiencing things that many of us consider "ordinary or common."

My fifth grade students are gregarious, inquisitive, bilingual children from different countries with similar cultures.

There are always conversations about how they are grateful for being able to enjoy living in the United States. However, since Hurricane Harvey, many of those conversations have been diminished, in some cases silenced.

It is not possible for me to determine the direction their home life unfolds, but what I can do for them is try to provide a classroom in which they can feel safe to experience new things and reach new goals. My goal is to inspire them to academic excellence by reaching their full potential.

My Project

My students need a set of 15 Chromebooks each with a mouse. These Chromebooks will be used for various activities. The students will be using them while I am working with a small group during Guided Reading. One way they will be used is as a Reading, Writing, Social Studies, or Technology Center. Some of the programs the students will be able to use are IStation, Achieve 3000, and Learning A-Z, for Reading, Google Drive for Writing by creating their own literary and/or informational stories, and Studies Weekly for Social Studies. They can create book reviews to motivate each other to read. Another use for the Chromebooks is for their monthly technology project, not to mention the research they could do for Multicultural week and the project that goes along with it. It would also make it feasible for my students to complete assignments on Google Classroom, Skyward Quizzes, and take AR tests on their library books. Lastly, they would be able to read digital books from our school library or our county library with them.

Your generous donation will give my students an opportunity to have technology help them make real world connections to the concepts they are learning in my classroom and be a part of our digital world.

Since I also coach the Spanish and English Spelling Bee contestants, Geography Bee contestants, and the Maps, Charts, and Graphs Academic Meet (UIL) contestants, they can definitely use the Chromebooks for practice, as well. As you can see, we do have a need and a use for the Chromebooks in my classroom. We greatly appreciate your donation and God bless.
