My class time centers around strong reading and math instruction. I have research based computer programs available to help fill in some of the holes my students have, but I don't have the tools for my students to adequately access these tools! That is where you come in!!
Over 90% of my students are below the poverty level, and over 50% are English language learners.
Many of them do not have access to any type of technology outside of my classroom. However, they are expected to be technologically literate for state testing. My students would benefit greatly from having exposure to the technology we are so greatly lacking.
I would love to have a new laptops for my class. My students would use these laptops to practice sight words, work on adaptive math and reading programs, and write stories. They will also use them to create presentations of their work to share with their classmates and parents. I have great programs available to my students, but we currently have only two laptops for twenty-five students to use. I would love to have some great technology available for them to utilize the available programs.
Having another laptop with mouse in my classroom would give my underprivileged students exposure to the technology that they will so desperately need throughout their school age years and into adulthood.
It will give them the opportunity to access the many adaptive programs that are available to them, and to improve their reading, writing, and math skills. Thank you so much for considering donating to my classroom.
