What I love about kids is that they love to sing and dance, and they hold no inhibitions about who is hearing or looking at them.
My students are fourth grade English Language Learners.
Their curiosity and hunger for knowledge is tremendous. The majority of my students learn best through hands-on and visual applications of the curriculum standards. They are social, enjoy working in group activities, and are excited about using technology to facilitate their learning. They attend an inner city school where they face real life challenges in the community.
As the years pass, more and more of the curriculum is online, and online access is a requirement in order to be successful. Unfortunately, our school district does not have the budget to supply Chromebooks to individual classrooms. The lack of technology creates a huge disadvantage to my students trying to compete in the real world and become successful in whatever path they choose. We only have four classroom computers that are up and working for my 33 children right now. The children will use age-appropriate websites and programs to play games and complete lessons that will help in aiding him or her in their reading weaknesses.
My students are extremely motivated and love to learn, but without access to Chromebooks, they are unable to use programs critical to their learning and success in the classroom.
With this Chromebook I will be able to give my students access to programs that will help them learn, grow, and succeed during this school year.
