Mr. Blankenship from Bakersfield CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make 1:1 Fun!

My students need a couple of Chromebooks to bring my class to 1:1. We do not have funding for extra technology at this time. I want to prepare my students for the future.

My Students

I teach first grade to a group of students that are eager to enhance their education with the use of technology in the classroom.

I want my students to have every opportunity to learn.

With the use of technology I will be able to reach all students by differentiating instruction for them.

All of my students are bright and ready to learn. I know that we would make the most of this technology and would appreciate your support of this project.

My Project

I am requesting a donation of a couple of Chromebooks to give my students a chance to all use technology at the same time. I am a big Google classroom user and I feel that having the tools for my students will help them be successful in the future. I am requesting HP Chromebooks because they are what the district uses currently.

In order to "future proof" my students, they need access to the latest technology tools.

Chromebooks are being used district wide. With access to this technology, my students will be ready for first grade and beyond. Thanks for your support!
