My 3rd graders are full of wonder and spunk. I have a classroom library for them to learn and explore in that students take full advantage of. They are ready to explore all the world has to offer them.
My students are curious but with no way of becoming a digital global citizen within the classroom.
As part of a growing charter school, we are encouraged to expand our thinking and continually grow as citizens of the world. My students are eager to explore many more things than are capable in our current classroom.
Using the workshop model in math, students come to the rug to practice their math facts with one another daily. Right now they use paper and pencil to review their fact. By having Chromebooks in the room, our students will have the opportunity to use the school's subscription to IXL; this is especially important for my students who do not have technology access at home either.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether or not their friends know their facts too. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
