Every Child Engaged

My students need 3 chromebooks to use throughout the day.

My Students

Five short! I could afford to buy 15, but I am 5 short! An employee in St. Paul Mill, said that Donor's Choose could help! Please help me buy 3 of the 5 I still need.

My kids are bright, energetic movers and shakers.

They don't sit still. They are always busy. Over half of our school qualifies for the free or reduced lunch program. Most kids also eat breakfast at school. These kids have a lot of challenges in their everyday lives, but learning shouldn't have to be one of them.

My Project

My father died a few years ago and my mother passed away at the end of May. I inherited a little money from them and used it to purchase 15 Chromebook laptops to use in my classroom. I need 20 laptops, but can't afford to buy the last 5. We have a few older unreliable computers that the last 5 kids use, but I would love to have a Chromebook for everyone. With your help, maybe we can get 3 of the 5 I still need. My class is filled with great writers this year. Each child has a blog that shows a record of their learning. We have already learned to make videos and post them to these blogs. We use the site IXL for math. Imagine a self-correcting math workbook that gives out virtual prizes for completing work and you have IXL. My kids love math! My non-readers listen to interactive books on the web during reading and everyone takes their spelling test online. We do a lot of things that aren't on the computer every day too, but when they are on the computers, they are 100% engaged.

Please help me equalize the playing field for my students.

The world is technology-based. I can give these kids a great start to their eduction with the right tools. I've spent some of my own money because I believe these tools are of great benefit to my students. Please help me finish what I've started by purchasing a few more Chromebooks for our classroom.
