My Students

My students are eager to learn and strive to succeed. With technology readily available, my students prefer books to computers for math instruction. The district is going to an online adoption for our math curriculum. The students are asking for math books. Books they can write in, books they can carry and refer back to for examples and practice problems. I'd like to give them what they want. These kids were so successful in last year's standardized testing. They pair their success to our working relationship and to having a math book they understand and can work with.

My Project

The Apple Mac will enhance a print-rich classroom. One specific lesson plan utilizing the computer is a student written non-fiction ABC book. I have 87 students that would benefit from this technology. The students research 4 famous scientists. Math books will allow students to apply their understanding of the AZ Mathematical Standards. Math books will allow students to increasingly engage within the subject matter as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise.

A publishing center gives students an authentic purpose for writing and allows their work to be shared with others beyond classroom boundaries.

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. Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with hand on materials will increase their mathematical fundamentals as well as their desire to learn.
