Energy for Energetic Minds

My students need a charging cart for our iPads and Chromebooks.

My Students

I teach a first grade class of 25 students in an urban school district in a high-needs community. The low socioeconomic status of 85% of our school's students and the grim budget cuts have made the learning environment limited. The biggest obstacle for my students is the violence that they witness in their community outside of the school day, however, in our classroom, they are safe, interactive and eager to learn.

Even though I teach General Education, many of my students have learning disabilities that often disrupt learning.

This charging cart will help to keep our computers powered up while keeping students actively engaged in such a huge classroom.

My Project

My students have been blessed with iPads and chrome books. My students will use these computers during math centers and literacy centers. During math, students will be able to use math apps that track their progress and differentiate lesson plans based on their needs, strengths and weaknesses. Students will rotate daily and have the opportunity to practice their math skills several times a week. Students will also have access to the tablets during literacy centers. They will be able to read leveled books, take comprehension quizzes, and write short stories (practicing both fiction and nonfiction). Students will be able to watch videos that take them out of the classroom on virtual field trips that they can share about with their classmates and families. The charging cart I am requesting will keep our devices fully charged and ready to go since they will be used by many students every day.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

This technology can help them explore subject areas and give them confidence that they will have for the rest of their lives.
