My students need 2 Acer Chromebooks so they can do research and meet their Accelerated Reader Goals without standing in line.
Remember the days of dial up Internet and waiting what seemed like forever for the internet to connect and load? Well our only working student computer is so slow my students are loosing valuable learning time waiting for it to load and waiting in line to use it.
I teach a fabulous group of fifth graders that are excited about learning and want to be immersed in technology.
They also love to read and are eager to meet their Accelerated Reader Goals. Every morning there is a line as they wait for the computer to take their test so they can go get a new book. Students eager to learn should not have to stand in line and wait.
We have also been going to the outdoor classroom and learning about our environment. Just this week a local environment group donated 6 trees native to Alabama for us to plant that my students would like to learn more about. Today a turtle was found at the outdoor classroom and my students would like to be able to look up what kind of turtle, but they were having a hard time getting our computer on-line.
I just want 2 Acer Chromebooks to add working technology to my classroom so my students can do research projects about what they find at our outdoor classroom and things we read about in class. They also need to be able to take Accelerated Reader tests on the books they've read so they can meet their quarterly goals.
We all dislike waiting in lines, and my students should not be waiting to learn.
They are curious and eager and they need computers with internet access so they can be hands-on and discover the world around them.
