My Students

I have a group of fantastic 4th graders who range in age from 8 - 10. They are a wonderful group of boys and girls from varied economic and ethnic backgrounds.

My students are eager to learn but with varied learning styles, I am continually challenged to find ways to ensure they all maximize their learning potential.

In 4th grade we complete a significant amount of projects writing about field trips, books, and a key element to our 4th grade curriculum, California Missions. I would love to see my students be able to complete their projects using 21st century technology.

My Project

Last year we were able to acquire 5 Chromebooks through generous support of our parents and Donors Choose. They have been a huge success! Having just a few more Chromebooks in our fourth grade classroom will significantly help with the completion of key projects the students complete throughout the year. The most significant usage would be in literacy and math projects but would also assist in key elements of 4th grade curriculum like California Missions and Gold Rush Reports.

Chromebooks offer the opportunity for digital learning and will undoubtedly benefit the varied learning styles of my students.

Rigorous Common Core standards have challenged my students differently. Having a learning vehicle like Chromebooks will help me ensure I can have another method in which to reach a broader group of students to ensure they all feel confident in learning and thus succeed. Chromebooks offer free education apps, they make the learning experience exciting, and with the fast boot-up times, I find this would be the most beneficial addition to my classroom. Thank you for your consideration of a donation to my class.
