My students need two notebook computers to be able to use the Accelerated Reading program that the school purchased for them.
I see the commercials giving away lap tops to students in developing countries, but I struggle because my students are also below grade level in reading. These laptops would help our classroom, which believes that Reading is Knowledge and Knowledge gets us to College!
My students are amazing 6th graders who want to go to college and have amazing careers.
Sadly, many of them struggle to read and have 4-5 grade reading levels. They are excited about learning and are excited to use this new computer program! They attend a school that emphasizes the use to technology in every day lessons. However, the reality is that we don't have computers in every room and that getting computer time for our students on a regular basis is tough--sometimes impossible. For my students, they know that there are great things for them to learn on the Internet, but they don't always have the ability to use it.
My school bought licenses for my students to use the Accelerated Reading program which helps advance students to the next reading level and allows me to track their progress. This tracking would give me the ability to work with small groups of students who are all reading on the same level and who are struggling. Having the computers in our classroom would give my students the opportunity to use the computers on a daily basis rather than once every 1-2 weeks. This would give me a better understanding of how well my students are doing, as well as get them excited in both the program and in reading in general. In a society where many students struggle to read, making it fun is essential. For my students, fun includes the ability to type on a keyboard and use the Internet. The addition of these two computers to our classroom would make our room an even more joyous place for my students to learn and excel.
My students need this reading program to help them on their journey to college.
Many of them are English Language Learners whose parents did not go to college. For them to be at or above grade level in reading is essential for their journey to greatness. Please fund our project and help my students go beyond the education barrier!
