Laptops For Learning

My students need two laptops for everyday writing and typing practice.

My Students

Let's get ready for a technological world! My students are learning to type, and we would love to have the opportunity to use technology in the classroom!

I am a first grade teacher in a low-economic community.

We may not have much financially, but we are rich in academics! We work hard everyday to meet both grade level expectations, as well as our own personal goals. I teach 22 motivated and sweet first grade students that are always striving to be the best that they can be.

My Project

I am requesting two chrome laptop computers. We will use these computers daily. I plan on having my students get used to typing up their work, especially since all future tests require typing skills. We will type up daily journal assignments as well as practice typing using basic programs. I want my students to feel comfortable in front of a keyboard,and I want my students to have this opportunity every day!

Typing is a very important skill.

I want my students to get an early start in practicing! Having two laptops in the room will motivate my students to type, which in turn will motivate them to write as well. They love going to the computer lab to type up their work once a week, why not bring the computer lab to them and have them practice every day?
