Mrs. Parker from Erin TN is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Digging Into Bugs

My students need a Chromebook to complete their literacy-based scientific studies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I have several students that struggle with learning disabilities. I am looking to provide my students with a creative and meaningful learning experience.

My students are creative and love to learn.

They just need materials that suit their variety of learning differences. We all learn differently and need a variety of materials to do so. We will truly appreciate any help that is provided with funding this project.

My Project

My students need a new Chromebook in order to continue using their intervention in the classroom for literacy-based scientific studies. Our intervention program allows students to read about all different types of literature, including scientific articles on insects, environmental studies, and much more.

Intervention is the most important thing for our students!

They will also be able to look up information on bugs and their history. They will also learn more about insects and how they survived and thrived during different periods in history. They would not be able to accomplish this with out the use of a Chromebook computer. This program will teach them how to search for information they need.
