Crazy for Chromebooks!

My Students

My students are energetic, eager to learn, and fun-loving. Despite some tough situations some of my students face at home, they come in every day really giving it their all. Coming from an urban district at a Title I school, unfortunately my students do not have as many supplies and opportunities as the surrounding districts.

"The most important attitude that can be found, is the desire to go on learning." For this reason I work extra hard to raise money for supplies that will be used by my students.

These supplies benefit my students in so many ways, and it also teaches them a deeper lesson of how good the world can be. Over the years when I have told my students that we have gotten a project funded and we were getting new supplies, the looks on their faces were priceless. My students are so appreciative and donations from kind-hearted people really impact their lives in such a major way!

My Project

Today's generation of students lives in a technologically-inclined world. It is natural that technology has become a vital part of the classroom. Our class does its best to incorporate up to date strategies for our precocious learners. Many of my students face hardships associated with low-socioeconomic status.

Often times my students do not have access to resources such as activities and/or computers that allow them an interactive, engaging experience.

Every day during centers and independent work time, students will engage in various reading, math and/or enrichment activities. These activities will elevate their learning - meaning they're going above and beyond the daily work! They'll use these Chromebooks for Accelerated Readers so they can assess their reading skills on books they read. They'll use the program I-Ready to strengthen their growing practical skills. Most importantly, they'll be able to use the Lexia and Reading A-Z program in order to visualize how much academic growth they've made throughout the year! Students will have the opportunity to share their learning with others, be engaged in the interactive activities, and be proud of their academic achievements!
