My students walk into my classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them. During our morning meeting, we repeat our promise, "I promise to never give up!" I have worked hard to instill in my kiddos that I believe in them and they can do anything that they set their minds to. Our school is the center of learning for our diverse group of kiddos. I am passionate and dedicated to finding exciting and engaging ways to help our little learners be the best that the best that they can be, and most of the time, I am spending my own money to be able to provide our kids with these resources.
The sad reality is that many families struggle to provide their children with the basic needs.
Our students come from a variety of economic backgrounds, with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best when they walk through the door. They want to be in school and they want to learn all they can so they can be successful.
Chromebooks would be a great addition to my classroom. 21st century skills are becoming more and more important. By having access to more technology, it would open the door for more opportunities for students to create and explore, will gaining skills that will enhance their lives as they continue to grow. These would be used multiple times daily by my students. The Chromebooks would be used during our literacy and math block to provide more students a chance to get on the school literacy program, work on interactive task cards, and develop projects using the Google Platform.
We have a very limited number of students who are able to get a sufficient amount of time each day due to lack of resources.
With the Chromebooks, more students would be able to use them in literacy centers to practice phonemic awareness, word building, and fluency. They would also be able to use interactive math tools to help them problem solve and use their imaginations to develop and execute projects that require deeper thinking. Students would be able to work on skills using a variety websites that engage and excite students about learning. These tools will provide me with a way to differentiate instruction and cater to the needs of each individual student.
These Chromebooks will engage them in a way that is fun and exciting.It will allow students with different learning styles to receive differentiated instruction and practice to help concepts get through to them. It will also provide my students who don't have many, if any opportunities to use technology, a chance to get it in their hands.
