Mrs. Baddour-George from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Daily Five Literacy Center

My students need a computer to work on their Daily Five Literacy Center. We had a computer in our classroom and it broke.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are learning two different languages!

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

My students had two computers in the classroom that they took turns to used everyday to work on their Listening and Reading skills. We now only have one computer that has to be shared among 26 students. They are learning two different languages and the computer has great programs that helps them pronounce words correctly and learn the meaning of the words. They also can read and listen to story books in two different languages that will also help them learn. My students can also learn technology skills when they use the computer. By donating it will help them with their reading skills in two languages.
