Our school is an elementary school in Manchester, NH, the state's largest city. We are a Title I school with students from diverse backgrounds. Many of our students speak English as a Second Language. We have a high poverty rate with over half of our students receiving free or reduced lunch. Many of our students come from families who are unable to purchase needed school supplies.
My students need Chromebooks for online math and reading practice to prepare for online tests required by the school district.
My fifth grade students use Chromebooks everyday for online practice of math and reading to prepare for mandated online testing. Currently, I have 27 students but only 8 Chromebooks in my classroom. By adding one more Chromebook, I will be able to allow more students to have practice time that is required to prepare for online testing. In addition to testing practice, the Chromebooks are used for exploring socials studies and science topics in order to write reports. The Chromebooks are also used to practice math fluency and problem solving skills using educational websites such as Khan Academy.
