I teach in a Title 1 school where 100% of the students qualify for free breakfast and lunch in New York. My third grade students love to learn and explore new ideas. Unfortunately, most of my students are functioning far below grade level standard in all academic standards. My students are very active, and love to be involved in hands-on learning activities. They especially love learning with the use of technology, such as the interactive whiteboard. I am amazed at how quickly children acquire new information through the use of technological tools! Technology's interaction and graphics always captures my students’ interest a lot more than our more traditional methods of teaching using paper and pencil. Despite being animated in my teaching strategies, technology usually wins in capturing my students' attention.
I am requesting a laptop computer to use with my students during Literacy Centers, and throughout the school day. My students are in Literacy Centers every day for 45 minutes. This is a time for Guided and independent activities. My students will use the laptop to listen to stories read to them, and play educational games without disrupting their peers. The laptop will also assist me in planning and preparing differentiated literacy activities including story telling,reading and writing activities. This laptop will be very effective in helping to scaffold my students to New Heights! Students will have the necessary exposure to help them develop skills necessary to succeed in this 21st century environment.
Your assistance will certainly help us to have a successful landing!
