Ms. Sanchez from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make Learning More Diverse And Fun!

Help me give my students another medium to further practice and gain the necessary skills at their individual level. These Chromebooks will allow my students to access learning sites such as IXL and Achieve 3000.

My Students

I am a first year educator, teaching a 2nd and 3rd grade split. My classroom is composed of a diverse group of students, both ethnically and with different assets. These students all have different needs and strengths that should be supplemented. My kids aren't exposed to too much technology, since there currently is only one Chromebook cart for a floor (for about 5 classrooms). As the school year progresses, I will try to incorporate much social emotional learning, social justice, and higher order thinking this school year. These teachings will allow my students to be more socially aware and responsive to of others.

I want to meet all of my students' diverse needs and build on their assets; but building an inviting classroom environment on a first year teacher's budget is extremely difficult.

I want my students to feel supported and I believe that in order to build a trusting relationship we need to have a good classroom environment.

My Project

I am a first year teacher, trying to provide my diverse students with an opportunity to access learning through different mediums. Currently, my classroom has access to only 6 Chromebooks a day. I am also trying to build up my classroom library, in order to have leveled-readers for my students.

I believe that learning should be interactive, what better way than a book that is at their level, which they will be able to read, and a Chromebook that will allow them to access educational websites.

I believe that by providing them with different learning resources they will be able to not only engage more, but also discover that learning is fun.
