Mrs. Tobin from Lawrenceville GA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My fifth graders are eager to learn and love innovative ways to learn difficult skills. Most students in my classroom come from a low-income family; therefore, they may not have the opportunity to use a lot of technology at home. Working in a Title I school brings a lot of challenges, but these students do not let those challenges come in the way of their learning.

My classroom is very diverse with the majority being Hispanic.

All of my students know the importance of learning and education. They come to school every day eager and ready to learn. It is my job to keep them up to par on new, innovative ways to learn skills so that they can be successful.

My Project

These tablets will add technology to my classroom. Students will be able to create videos, use apps to increase reading fluency and practice math facts on these tablets. They are kid friendly and will definitely keep the students interest in learning.

My students amaze me with their knowledge of technology.

These tablets will take their knowledge and increase it while practicing everyday skills in my classroom. It has been proven that technology increases student engagement in the classroom. The more technology they more innovative my students can be. In the end becoming successful students and mastering skills which is the end goal.
