Mrs. G. from Montgomery IL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks for Gifted Students

My students need Chromebooks for research within both reading and mathematics. They will also use them to publish writing projects and play interactive math games.

My Students

My students are actively engaged in lessons that take them well beyond the Common Core State Standards. Each day we focus on higher level critical thinking skills in both math and reading. My students participate in hands-on, technology-rich lessons, but we need more devices for these lessons.

My students are considered high achieving or gifted in either math, reading, or both.

They come to me each day with a thirst for knowledge and embrace challenges. They enjoy working cooperatively and often have the opportunity to do so in both math and reading. At our Title I school we have funding for students who are low achievers, but are in great need of resources for these high achieving students to meet their full potential.

My Project

Students will be able to use chrome books to research topics of interest and write informational essays. They will also be able to apply mathematics to real-life situations as they conduct research for economics lessons. In addition, my students will have access to a multitude of math and reading websites for further enrichment and exploration of concepts.

My students are typically very technologically advanced for their age, but I don't currently have the resources for them to apply their knowledge in this way within the classroom.

Chrome books would open up a world of math and reading opportunities to enrich them at a much deeper level and in an authentic way.
