Mrs. Foyle-Saft from Anchorage AK is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a Chromebook to access math programs, a charging station, and some personal whiteboards.
Our school is close to two military bases, and many of my students are the children of deployed military personnel. The school they attend is an older, urban public school in the largest city in the largest state in the United States.
All of my students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch, but we are not a Title I school.
That means that my wonderful first graders have all of the needs and few of the resources that are available to other low-income children.
My first graders are struggling to learn the basics---math, reading and science. Nearly half of them receive services for ESL, Special Education and Indian Education (JOM). Most of my class are below grade-level, but they love being in school because they love learning. School is everything to them. Their smiles melt my heart.
I have wonderful students, but they are handicapped because the majority of them do not have access to technology outside of school. Our school district is caught in an economic downward spiral. We don't even have funding for school supplies and the technology we are forced to use is aging. We do not have Chromebooks in our classroom, and we have to sign up to use the shared computers in the lab for a 30-minute slot once a week.
My students love technology, but they rarely get to use it even though our district has online math programs they need to access on a daily basis.
Many of my students struggle with math and suffer from innumeracy. They need the tools that will help them become successful. I am requesting one Chromebook and a charging station so they can access our district's online math program in our classroom. I am also asking for some personal whiteboards for our new classroom financial literacy/math center. My students will use these every day for math projects.
If my first graders are going to learn about math, they are going to need the help of donors. Our district does not have the funds for the resources I am requesting. I need this Acer computer so my students can have access to online math programs. I am excited for my students to learn the skills that will carry them through school.
