Mrs. Sherman from Muskegon MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Paper/ Pencil Writing isn't for Everyone... Special Education Writing

My students need Chromebooks to access a variety of writing tools. Since paper/ pencils are not an option for all students, we need to offer anything that can help them express their thoughts and ideas!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students are in a self-contained Cognitive Impairment classroom. We have students from neighboring districts within our Regional Program. We love to explore new things in the classroom and love technology! One of our favorite times of the day is Writer's Workshop!

One of the favorite activities is Author's Chair, when the students get to share their writing with their peers.

We enjoy making learning fun and sharing our learning with others! We are looking forward to a new way of writing!

My Project

Paper and Pencils are not for every writer... some students are not able to hold a pencil or unable to form letters. We need to offer a variety of tools for each student to be successful writers and be able to tell THEIR story.

By getting two HP Chromebooks, you would be helping Writer's Workshop EVERY DAY in our classroom.

Our students LOVE Writer's Workshop and sharing their ideas. Some students need something different and for our classroom to have two Chromebooks, we can start by offering a new way to write.

These Chromebooks will be accessible for our students throughout the day, any time the student needs to express their thoughts or is unable to write with paper/ pencil option.
