Our Classroom Is Going Green!
My students need a netbook to continue our efforts to have a paperless classroom and an Activity Kit to explore different ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
The easiest and most meaningful way our classroom can "Go Green" is to go paperless! However 5 computers shared between 18 students is what our district is able to provide out of our dwindling budget. Netbooks in the classroom bring learning directly into the lap of students!
Most of my third-graders have already attended at least one other school in the state.
Many have recently relocated to Florida from another state,county, and some from another country. Because our school has such a large percentage of families who qualify for free or reduced lunch, we receive Title 1 funding. These are families struggling with the daily necessities of life. Many do not have computers and/or Internet access in their homes.
The benefits of paperless learning cannot be quantified. Starting a collection of netbooks will not only bring learning directly into the hands of students, but it will also reduce how much money our school spends on paper! Our society is at an exciting turning point. Students are ready to embrace digital learning! Research shows teachers are having a more difficult time... however, with your help our classroom can mark a turning point at our school. I am requesting 1 netbook for my class.
In addition to the netbook, a Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Activity Kit will further engage the kids in ways they can use the "three Rs" in their daily lives at home and at school.
Dr. Seuss writes, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
It's not." Please help these students learn about how to help conserve and appreciate Mother Earth by using technology and exploring activities that will empower students into thinking of MORE creative ways we can help make the world a better, cleaner, place.
