My classroom is a home away from home for 11 unique third through fifth-grade enthusiastic minds that are excited to learn about the world around them. Many of my students come from recent immigrant families residing in low-income neighborhoods. We are a Title I school, which means that our school is located in a high poverty neighborhood. Most of the students in my class are eligible for free lunch, and many of them do not have access to important resources such as technology at home. Many of them only get to experience and access these valuable tools while at school.
My Special Day Class is made up of students with a broad range of needs.
Their eligibilities range from autism, Specific Learning Disabilities, and Other Health Impairments. Despite some of the barriers my students experience on a regular basis, they are happy, passionate, and eager to learn. Many of my students struggle in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics.
I am hoping to add two Chromebooks to my classroom so students will have technology access. The materials I am requesting will change my students' lives by providing access to instructional math, reading, and writing materials that fit to their individual learning needs. It will allow for me to provide the necessary materials that will allow for them to become productive school citizens. I need Chromebooks to vastly improve their learning experience at school. I am hoping to increase their technological awareness as well as to support their learning in our classroom. By providing access to word processing and presentation programs like Google Docs, my students will gain the necessary skills to be successful in the 21st century.
