My Students

My students are a wonderful group of children. They love coming to school each and every day. They work hard in all academic areas. They are struggling learners who put forth a tremendous amount of effort to excel.

My students are wonderful and they love to learn!

They try so hard all day long, and have made such amazing improvements this year and would love to continue to make improvements. They look forward to school each and every day and every subject is exciting for them.

My Project

This MacBook will make such a difference in the lives of all of my students. This MacBook will make learning difficult ELA skills much easier by incorporating the Internet into their daily lessons. This MacBook will make learning reading so much easier for my students who struggle on a daily basis. They will be able to share the MacBook in small groups while learning how to read with fluency and decode with accuracy.

This MacBook will create such an amazing opportunity for my students of all developmental levels to learn at a much faster rate and it will also provide more opportunities for success in reading, writing, and spelling.

They love to learn and this MacBook will make it so much easier for them to accomplish their goals.
