Mrs. Miller from Detroit MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Laptop Learners

My students need a laptop to work on their skills needed for the future.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My second grade students come from low-income families. They are sweet, energetic, and eager to learn! These students come from a diverse background. Some of them are bilingual with English as a second language.

They love to learn and get excited about coming to school.

Many of my students don't have a laptop or computer at home. The only opportunity many of my students get to access their computer programs is in the classroom. I think it is important to establish the foundation of computer skills early on in their education.

My Project

This laptop will provide a resource for my students to work on their iReady, Accelerated Reading quizzes and MathFacts practice. They will also be learning how to use various programs that will help them to get excited about learning. It is essential that we provide our students with the learning and tools they need.

We have found that in order for our students to be successful in online testing that they need to practice these programs with up to date technology.

By having a laptop I can teach my students the skills that they will need to be successful adults.
