Mrs. Clarke from Danbury CT is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Calculator Madness

My students need calculators to help them in both resource and the general education classroom setting. My students also need prizes to fill our prize box and bean bag filler.

My Students

I work in a Title I school district where students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 60% of our student population receiving free lunch. As teachers, we are encouraged to incorporate technology into the classroom, as well as create a comfortable learning environment. Working in a low-income school district, it is hard to come across the necessary materials required to enhance student learning and my own teaching style.

My students do not have access to technology at home so I think it is important for them to have it at school.

Many of them do not have the opportunity to use technology through out their school day. Unfortunately, I got a lot of hand-me-downs from other teachers and many of my materials are about thirty years old including the calculators we are using.

Each day, students walk into my classroom full of energy, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them. With that being said, they deserve an environment that keeps them engaged and comfortable.

My Project

I am requesting a set of calculators as well ask some addition items for my classroom. I want students to be able to use the calculators in the resource room as well as be able to bring them to their main stream math classes where they are beginning algebra.

The calculators would make my students lives so much easier and give them a chance to get used to them before high school.

My students need to have many opportunities to practice using this type of technology. As special education students these learning curves could be a big challenge for them.
