Mrs. Herrin from Manito IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mrs. Herrin's Chromebooks in the Classroom Project

My students need 5 Chromebooks to help enhance our reading, writing, and math stations to maximize learning in the classroom! Chromebooks will also help my young students become more familiar with technology in the classroom.

My Students

I have 10 students that are in kindergarten and first grade. My students spend the majority of their day in the special education classroom with me. Although many of my students come from low income households, they come in excited to learn each day. They are thinkers, questioners, and explorers. My job as their teacher is to give them every resource possible to expand their learning and prepare them for the future. I try to make my classroom a place that my students can come to learn to love learning.

My Project

In order to differentiate learning in my classroom, I incorporate technology into center times. All of my students are learning at different levels, and adding chromebooks will not only help open doors to teaching my students at different levels, but also introduce my young students to technology, which they may not have access to at home. We use iPads at times, but I feel that Chromebooks would help open up more opportunities in my classroom. There are many things I would love to do on technology as a teacher, but access to computers or devices at our school is very limited, especially for special education classrooms.

We are requesting five Chromebooks.

With these new Chromebooks, I would be able to get more students connected to technology each day. The Chromebooks would allow for enough technology for station work in my classroom during reading, writing, and math. My students would also be able to use to Chromebooks to support publishing their work.

Being familiar with technology is such a vital skill for students growing up in this digital world.

As a teacher, I want to prepare my students to succeed and feel comfortable navigating technology as I prepare them for the world outside of my classroom. By providing students with these Chromebooks, they will be given this opportunity!
