Mrs. Dionne from Pontiac MI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Desperately Seeking Technology for Low Income School

Help me give my students a document camera and comfortable headphones, to utilize audio features on the computer for reading online books, test taking, and to limit the distractions around them.

My Students

A majority of my third grade students are English Language Learners. They are learning to read, write, and speak English. They come to school each day with a smile and a passion to learn. I am very proud and blessed to be their teacher. Our classroom community is built on love, respect, and most of all learning! My students are enthusiastic and yearn for educational opportunities that are hands-on, include movement, and integrate technology.

I want to provide my students with resources that will help them to enhance their learning and ability to achieve proficiency on standardized tests.

My Project

In today's world technology is essential for students to succeed, but at my school we are limited as to what we can provide for our students. The current headphones at my school are broken and hard to hear from. It is imperative for English Language Learners to have comfortable and adequate headphones to improve their reading, listening, and speaking. The headphones will help enhance their comprehension, pronunciation, articulation, and confidence dramatically.

I am also asking for a document camera for my classroom to allow for better visibility and tactile learning.

By using a document camera, I am able to model the expectations of the task at hand, incorporate student involvement through interactive lessons, and use it as a platform to show off student work.
