Mrs. Eddings from Ford Heights IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

In Need of Chromebooks for my 5th-Graders

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My 5th grade student is made of a low income community in which I buy a lot of classroom supplies. Many students cannot complete homework if the homework consist of using the computer. Normally, I save these assignments due to the lack technology at home and at our school which is very limited.

Currently I work in 5 Small groups for my classroom and it would be nice if I had Chromebooks or tablets for student to work on reading and math.

My Project

I work in an urban community where my 5th graders are not having the opportunity to have computers on a day to day to enhance their learning skills. In my classroom I work in small groups and by having computers in the classroom I can continue to advance every students as well as providing new way to ensure instructional rigor is being taught and formed.

Please help my school out as well as my students so they can have an opportunity like other communities to be offered the best of the best that is my goal.

Thank you in advance.
