Ms. Grandi from Chicago IL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology Center

My students need eight iPads for greater access to technology in our classroom. With these iPads, students will be able to work on reading comprehension and math fluency.

  • $2,090 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My class comes to school each day ready to learn and grow. From small group book discussions, to revising a peer's writing, to using yard sticks to find the area and perimeter of the room, our class is always on the go. We work together as a team and teach one another every day. We are a family.

Every single day my students enter the classroom with a smile and a positive attitude.

They're excited and ready for the day ahead. My students love exploring and researching and enjoy working together on projects and assignments. They take pride in the work they create and want to share it with others. My students come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds and most come from low-income families. I learn every day from my students. They teach me about their cultures and countries, they teach me new words in their native languages, and they teach me about the things they love. I feel lucky every day to see them learn and grow and the excitement that comes from that learning.

My Project

This technology center will allow my students so many learning opportunities. Having iPads in the classroom will allow English Language Leaners to access their books and listen to them read aloud, while following along to increase word recognition. Students will use the iPads in groups to do research in Science and Social Studies to complete interactive group projects. The class can work on interactive Math games to help them increase their Math fluency. Access to these iPads will help them to learn essential technology skills that they cannot learn at home because of lack of materials. In my inclusion classroom, this technology will also support my diverse learners with special learning needs by providing extra support throughout the day. The opportunities for learning are endless with this amazing technology.

A donation to the technology center in my classroom will mean so much to my students.

Most of these students do not have any technology in their homes, so this donation would give them exposure to something new and exciting. Providing students with access to this technology will also help foster inquiry and independent thinking. By donating to our class technology center you will be providing my class with unlimited learning opportunities and will help my students to grow into lifelong learners.
