Ms. Rose from Orange TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need modern technology in order to succeed in their technology filled futures! We need 3 iPads.
I am an interventionist for a low income/poverty stricken school district. Our school has chosen the Istation program to monitor students progress. The students that come to me are at our lowest level. We consider them critical. The majority of my students want to learn, they are just so far behind their grade levels that they get frustrated and act out. There are many days that I will not see them for being suspended or they are placed in in-school-suspension for their behavior. Some of their stories are not even fathomable to most of us. Their home lives are comparable to those you see in a movie. Most of them just want someone that will care. These babies hold a very special place in my heart. Once they leave the elementary school, I follow their progress and make sure they keep traveling the right path.
Every teacher has their flashcards. We write on the board and hand out the black and white worksheets. My students are in need of more. It is difficult enough to keep their attention. These interactive items will give them the opportunity to be more hands on and with items that most have never experienced before.
Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn." This quote has stuck with me for years.
We can talk all day, but the truth is that kids now days need interaction. With all of the social media and technology, they have lost social skills, even at the young ages in elementary. I would appreciate any help in making my room more social. I want my kids to learn from me, but in a way that is best for them.
The iPad will be the final technology piece to assist them with their Istation learning program. They can test their math skills in our Istation program and play games on Cool Math. During their science classes, they often have reports that they need to research. These iPads will make that possible, as the majority of my students do not have internet access at home. Thank you for reading my story. I pray that you find it in your heart to give not to me, but to these deserving children.
