Mrs. P. from Tampa FL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need these ipads to help them to be successful in learning English and 3rd Grade Curriculum.
When I think about going to school, I think about tons of textbooks, hours of research in the library, and a lot of frustration from not actually finding what I need. My goal this year is to provide my students with anything and everything they will need to be successful. For the first time, my students will be tested online in Math. The unfortunate part is these students do not have the technology resources available to practice and get comfortable .
Our students come from low-income households that require them to take on a lot more than any 8-year-old should have to.
This year because of Hurricane Maria, I have also received many students from Puerto Rico. Because of the daily struggles my students face, I want them to feel like the only thing they have to worry about is being the best student they can be. I want them to feel like they are ready for anything and everything that is thrown at them. I don't want them to look back and feel like their elementary years were frustrating and unfair because the expectations were too high to reach.
These ipads will allow my students to learn many different ways to be successful. My students come from backgrounds that prevent them from having everything they need to learn. With these ipads my students will be able to utilize different types of learning applications from Math, Science, Reading, and coding. Even though math is a universal language, my students that are learning English tend to struggle with comprehension. I have found many ipad apps that allow students to start on a basic problem and then work up to a more challenging problem with advanced vocabulary and problem solving. With your help, these ipads could really set these students up for success in many different academic and social areas.
