Help me give my students access to 21st century technology by funding four Chromebooks

My Students

Over 85% of our students come from military families, so our students join us from diverse backgrounds and bring multiple languages to the classroom. Technology can help ensure that students have equal access to ability-specific curriculum.

Third Grade is an important year as students are putting into practice the skills they have developed during their first three years of school.

Third grade is a particularly crucial time for students to develop their reading and writing skills as they prepare for more challenging content in the coming years.

In our classroom students are engaged and eager learners, who thrive in a rigorous curriculum guided by self-directed learning.

My Project

Technology is used daily in our classroom to support learning, however with limited resources, only a few students have access to technology at the same time. These Chromebooks will enable students to engage with curriculum at their individualized level.

Students will utilize these Chromebooks to access the online components of our Language Arts, Math, and Science curriculum and to conduct research during our project-based learning time.

Currently, students are working on a research project that combines Science and Literacy. The use of technology will aid them in accessing information more easily, organizing information, and sharing their findings with classmates.

In addition to curricular support, these Chromebooks will provide third grade students with expanded learning opportunities and 21st century technology skills.
