Ms. Lehman from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Capitalizing on Chromebooks!

Help me give my students Chromebooks to provide them the opportunity to work on their individual math strengths and weaknesses and create small group partnerships for the new science curriculum's simulations.

My Students

I have 27 fourth graders and 24 fifth graders. I teach math and science. We set goals for their learning, and they take pride in their accomplishments. They want to be able to do more. Providing access to math programs that are individualized for each student will help them meet their individual goals. In science, students will be able to use small group learning through the new science curriculum. They will be able to manipulate the simulations for more hands-on learning.

My students are very curious and love to learn.

They are very bright, and soak up whatever concepts they are exposed to. My students need access to math programs that are individualized for each student so they can continue to grow and learn.

My Project

These eight Chromebooks will be used during math centers and science time. Math centers are highly differentiated, and Chromebooks will allow students to work on specific math skills that correlate to whole group learning. Students will have individualized learning paths to help them accomplish their math goals.

In science, the students will work in small groups on the Chromebooks to complete simulations as part of the new science curriculum.

These simulations allow students to practice the scientific method, as they make predictions, change different factors in the simulations, and record their results. Students later use these results as evidence to support a claim when they write a scientific argument.
