Mrs. Peterson from Durham NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Laptops for Learning

My students need two Chromebook laptops to utilize school-based computer programs and to help them publish their writing products.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. Every morning we do a morning meeting where students read a student pledge. I want them to know that they can do anything they put their minds to!

I teach at a Title I school in North Carolina where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend and many are without basic school needs, such as a book bag, notebooks, pencils, etc. Despite so many challenges in their young lives, my students are excited to come to school and are willing to learn and try their hardest.

My Project

Having two new Chromebook laptops will allow for different structures of learning in my classroom. One way they will be used is as a technology center. Students can practice their math facts using a computer program or they can practice their literacy skills using a school-based program. Another way they will be used is by allowing students to write and create PowerPoint presentations on their writing topics. The laptops will help the children create and explore different programs that are capable of helping their writing come to life.

My project will make a difference because it will increase student achievement at the highest level.

Our classrooms are not yet at the level technologically to meet their needs as learners. This grant will help to close that gap just a little bit more.
