Mrs. K. from Baldwinsville NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Going Pro with a Surface Pro!

Help me give my students a Microsoft Surface Go! We will use this in our classroom to document our reading conferences, make book trailers of all of the incredible books we are reading and make video book recommendations!

My Students

Middle school can be an exciting, yet challenging time for students, especially when they come from a variety of elementary schools and have to make new friendships all over again. It is a time where they discover who they are, find new friendships, and continue to build upon their skills as life-long learners. Students in this class of 25-30 will come together from all walks of life.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds and are in a process of discovery at this age; trying to find out who they are and trying to learn about others who are not always exactly like them!

30% of our building receives free or reduced lunch. This is a stark difference from our population just a few years ago. We are seeing greater and greater needs and our students have less access to technology in a world where technology is ever changing.

My Project

My 28 students are voracious readers. In just over four months, collectively they have read over 150 books! They are so excited about reading and want to share their book recommendations with their classmates, school and world! We would love to have a Surface Pro for our classroom to share out with everyone what we are reading and recommendations for great books.

Instead of students writing typical book reports or book recommendations that they will only read to each other or display in the hall, they would be able to share with the world!

They have caught the reading bug and this would help us share it with others.
