Ms. K. from Springfield MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Enthusiastic Kindergarteners Need Computers to Help Their ELA Skills Soar!

My students need Chromebooks so that they can access online phonics and literacy intervention programs, as well as fulfill the state standard of using digital tools to produce and publish their writing.

My Students

In K1, we are a community who loves to learn. From the moment they walk through the door, my students are excited to learn. Many of them rush through their breakfast every morning just so they can get started on their morning work or take a trip to the classroom library.

My classroom is primarily composed of low-income English language learners; in fact, among my students, five different languages are spoken!

Despite the differences in their backgrounds, my students have come together as a community. They love to help each other with everything, and they are proud of their class! Every morning, we begin our day by saying, "I am great all the time", and in K1, we mean it!

My Project

Students in my school district face a significant achievement gap in core literacy skills. As a means to close this gap, students in our school have been provided with access to online literacy and phonics intervention programs including Lexia Core 5. However, most of my students do not have computers at home in order to take advantage of this. We would love for those students to access the program at school instead, but we currently do not have computers in our classroom. This also means we have also been unable to fulfill the state Kindergarten writing standard of using digital tools to produce and publish writing.

Adding two Chromebooks to our classroom would allow our students to take full advantage of early literacy intervention programs and set them up for success throughout their school careers.

By ensuring that our students are given equal opportunity to access educational resources during their formative years of literacy education, we can work to close the achievement gap in our district.
