My students need ChromeBooks to complete their SmartyAnts online reading program. They are required to complete 40 minutes a week but we only have 2 ChromeBooks to share between 22 students.
Our school population consists of students from Section 8 apartments, 20+ in fact. We serve a small population of refugee students. Plus we have a few hotels that serve as homes to handful of students. Most are home to multiple families living under one roof of two rooms. About 99% of our students qualify to receive free lunch. At my school many students eat breakfast at school as well.
Unfortunately my students do not come to school prepared or with the necessary tools to succeed.
I work diligently to prepare lessons to meet their needs but unfortunately we are lacking some needed supplies. Our area has been featured in the Star Telegram this past year because of violence and negligence. Most of Fort Worth wants to clean up the area and give the children a better opportunity.
We are requesting two Chromebooks and four sets of headphones. Smarty Ants is a data driven online personalized reading program for young readers. My students are required to complete 20 minutes twice per week on Smarty Ants. We currently have two Chromebooks to share between 22 students which makes meeting our goal difficult. This program has shown great results with increase in the reading levels of my students. Students are engaged through different games to increase letter, sound and word building skills. Learners gain rewards for their completion of each level.
Adding two new Chrome Books and headphones would help us meet our goals and greatly benefit the reading skills of these kids.
