Mrs. Nieves from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology and Art are Fun!

My students need a Chromebook to play educational games and to watch videos of different countries and cultures since this is multicultural program. They also need collage material to create different things and crafts.

My Students

The children in the classroom are three to five years old. They follow rules and routine very well. They like to learn about the different studies implemented in the lesson plan. We learned about buildings and sand, and we are going to start a new study about bugs. They really loved the building study; they built bridges and buildings in the block area and the parents did a bridge project together with their children.

The children really enjoyed the insect study because they keep doing insect crafts in the art area.

They like to do caterpillars and butterflies using all different collage materials. The art area looks empty now for the next school year since the children enjoy create insects, purses and jewelry during free playtime.

They like to play educational games in the computer and search about interesting topics! The children take turns using the computer that we have in the classroom. It would be very helpful to have a Chromebook in the classroom, so two children would be able to play at the time. Moreover, the children would have the opportunity to explore and learn to use the Chromebook since they play in a regular desk computer.

My Project

The children like to play different games in the computer. They also like to watch educational videos like different countrie's buildings, or different culture's typical clothes. The children in the classroom like to watch and heard their favorites books such as, Chica chica Bum bum, and the three little pigs.

The children have to take turns to use the computers since the classroom has one computer for twenty children.

They also like to search interesting topics (with the teacher's support) such as, insects, buildings and trains. The children in the Gold Classroom love to do artwork during free playtime. They like to do caterpillars using different collage materials, purses and jewelry using shape collage supplies. They love to do houses using craft sticks and pieces of fabric. The youngest children in the classroom get very entertained painting with the water paint.

The classroom would be ready for the next school year with the new Chromebook and the art collage materials. The children would be more excited and happy to return to school when the new technology and the art area ready to create!
