My Students

Hello Potential Donors:

My students are very active and need a great deal of motivation in order to learn challenging or new information.

They are excited and enthusiastic about technology! My students are on the very lower end of the economic status and receive free lunch. Many of my students love to use the computers for research projects. It is such an important learning center for multiple reasons. Mostly, students who have difficulty reading or completing math are willing to use computer programs that help them to build their necessary skills.

Having more computers and laptops in our class would make a great difference in the academic and social development of my students. Having more computers and laptops would also afford me more time and attention to address the individual academic challenges. Many of the reading and mathematical skills and strategies can be reinforced on the computer in small groups. I have observed this in some of my reluctant learners, as well as English Language Learners. It is a very beautiful sight to witness students helping each other navigate and learn information on the computers (although we presently have only two computers for 28 to 32 students to share).

My Project

If my project is fully funded, I will use the computers to challenge my students in all academic areas. I will have daily questions, activities and projects for them to research, and work in teams to collaborate on for final products. Additionally, I will require my students to account for why and how they used their computer in small groups. They will be asked to summarize what they learned, what they want to learn and questions that they hope to learn answers to from future research. I will reinforce skills for reading by teaching students to identify the main idea, the genre and supporting details on topics. They will be taught how to determine the genre of a text by questioning the content (details) that is given. Using the various websites like Starfall and BrainPOP, Jr. will reinforce information that I model for my students during read alouds and shared reading. Websites like CoolMath.com will also be incorporated in small group sessions to reinforce math skills that have been modeled, discussed and explained. In essence, the computers will be the motivational tools that assist and motivate my students in reaching competency in all subject areas and the tool that propels them into expanding their scope of self discovery.
