My students are full of curiosity and eagerness to learn.
They come from a variety of backgrounds and languages.
Over 80% speak a first language other than English. Our school is home to a diverse population, over 90% free and reduced lunch and we have the highest homeless population at the elementary level in our district.
My enthusiastic students face challenges other than learning the English language and homelessness. They find themselves in a new culture that they need to figure out how to live in and navigate. They have had little to no exposure to the experiences we take for granted. They are loving, full of boundless energy and a sheer joy to be around!
My students need 4 Chromebooks to help them level the playing field and bring them into the technological age. Chromebooks would give them the ability to find information, practice the English language and allow them to virtually experience things they have not been able to yet.
They love to learn but are hampered by their lack of English and experiences.
Technology would help them in all areas of their learning and bring experiences to them that they otherwise would not get. This project would allow for those experiences and at the same time increase their knowledge of the English language, giving them the same experiences so they could talk and practice their English together.
