Mrs. Cotto from Brooklyn NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Chrome Through 1st Grade Eyes!

Help me give my students an HP Chromebook and headphones to use in the classroom. These will be used for educational programs, to conduct research, and learn through the eyes of technology.

My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. Despite the many challenges my students face, they look forward to coming to school where I provide creative and meaningful experiences. My students come in with smiles and are excited to know what the daily plans are, which are memorable to them. As I prepare my first-grade​ students for college and careers, I also remind them that learning can be fun. My students excel even though​ the odds are against them with all the challenges they face at home and at school.

My Project

Having a Chromebook will allow for a different structure of learning in my classroom. Students can look up pictures and information to incorporate into their writing, academic language, and knowledge. I will use the Chromebook to allow students to explore academic websites in order to practice skills for mathematics and reading, which would allow me to have activities for both my highest performing and most struggling students.

This project will allow students to integrate technology into their everyday academic structure and become a part of today's technological nature.

My classroom is not yet at the level of technology to meet the needs of my students as learners. This project will help to get closer to the level a little bit more.
