My students need 2 Chromebooks to develop their computer skills and practice essential educational skills using google apps.
When I tell my first grade students that we will be going to the computer lab once a week for 30 minutes, their eyes and faces light up with excitement and pure joy. I want to give my students this enhanced learning experience daily in our classroom.
I teach first grade in a very diverse multicultural school setting.
In the midst a very affluent community the school sits next door to a very large apartment complex that attracts low income families. A typical classroom has a wide range of students learning at extremely different ability levels. Differentiating is key to meeting the needs of second language learners, autistic students, vision impaired students, along with advanced high achieving and all hard working students. I have a student from Iraq with very limited English language skills. She has been progressing, but at a very slow pace. When given the opportunity to use the computer to practice basic phonics skills, this student eagerly responds and soaks up the graphics, music and animated way the app teaches her.
My students will use the Chromebooks every day in class. They will take reading comprehension quizzes on Accelerated Reader and be exposed to different educational apps that will meet their individual needs in all areas of the curriculum. I will encourage all students to develop their word processing skills by writing weekly stories on the Chromebook and printing them out for display, which will build a stronger self-esteem.
The donation of these Chromebooks will give my students ample opportunities to develop strong computer skills daily in the classroom.
This will make a difference in the lives of my students, giving them the tools they need to be successful in their years ahead.
