Mrs. Cleary Murphy from Haverhill MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Surface Go Will Go Far With Us!

Help me give my students a new and exciting piece of technology, a Microsoft Surface Go, for them to work on; I can use this as part of the PBI behavior incentive to motivate them.

My Students

I teach a substantially separate Language Cognition Classroom. I have three different groups of 10 students for Reading/E.L.A. The reading level of the students is significantly below grade level.

My students have a variety of learning disabilities and levels of ability.

They mainly come from lower income households. More than half qualify for free lunch. In addition, many come from households where English is not the primary language spoken at home. Many of my students struggle with spelling, and therefore, have difficulty expressing themselves in writing. They are afraid to take risks when writing for fear that they will make many spelling mistakes. New technology gets students excited to complete work and take some risks.

My Project

Being able to add a Surface Go to my classroom Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (P.B.I.S.) store will motivate my students to work hard to be able use it. My students love to be able to earn points and purchase items from the class store. A Surface Go would be a new and exciting addition for students to earn points towards time with the Surface Pro.

My students gets very excited to use technology in the classroom because many don't have it at home.

Having a change to earn to use a tablet with and attachable keyboard and Surface Pen would entice the students to work hard and continue to develop writing skills.
