I am a self-contained first grade teacher at what is called a "high priority school." The majority of our students are at a much lower socio-economic status than the norm. Many of our students are from single parent homes and do not have the rich background of knowledge needed to be successful academically. I have a high percentage of ESL students in my classroom. I try to provide a stimulating, educational environment, rich with knowledge and meaningful activities/experiences within my classroom in order for my children to be exposed to as much as possible. I have found a wonderful learning tool to help my children in math, reading and writing. LeapFrog offers wonderful learning resources that are both educational and fun!! I am writing this proposal with hopes of receiving a LeapFrog Leapster Technology Center with headphones and activity cartridges that will boost my childrens' desire to learn in all areas of the curriculum. Technology is a big part of our childrens' lives today. I feel that it is crucial to tap into what interests the children of today. My boys and girls will thrive if given these resources to use in the classroom. They will also be able to use these Leapsters as take-home packs. They will learn while having a wonderful time. The Leapster Technology Center will also be used during guided reading centers to enhance literacy/math and writing skills. Thank you for considering my proposal. I anticipate a fun and exciting, educational environment for my first graders.
