Mrs. Keller from Stamford CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a Chromebook, a protective case, and a wireless mouse.
I teach in a Title I, K-5 magnet school that educates almost 700 students each year. The students at my school come from a wide range of family dynamics. Some live in traditional households, while others live with single parents or extended family. My students' economic situations are just as varied as their family dynamics and more than sixty percent of our school qualifies for free lunch.
A large percentage of our school population consists of English language learners.
Seventy-five percent of my class speaks more than one language and often English is not spoken when they are at home. Regardless of these factors, every one of my students always possesses a passion for learning, exploring, and creating.
We only have one computer in our classroom, but it is connected to our Promethean Board and not accessible for student learning. We have district provided iPads, but they are aging and starting to fail. I would like to add a Chromebook to our classroom technology library since they are used in the upper grades. It would be a huge benefit to my students to give them this head start in getting familiar with this technology in Kindergarten.
My students need a Chromebook that they can use to access programs online during math and Daily 5 as well as begin to become familiar with Google Classroom which is used in the upper grades.
Having access to a Chromebook (with a wireless mouse) will allow my students to become familiar with using a keyboard and mouse instead of just swiping on an iPad. This is important because my students will take a math assessment on laptops or desktops and are required to navigate the assessment using a mouse. The hard shell cases will help to keep our Chromebook in great shape.
