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

Technology for Language Arts

My students need eight Chromebooks because we are implementing two new computer based programs into our curriculum.

  • $1,945 goal

This project expired on January 3, 2016.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students enter the classroom , they are introduced to the standards being covered that day and what activities we will be completing. The children are in need of computers in order to participate in up to date curriculum. I want my students to be able to learn at their own pace.

Our school is in a high poverty area.

We have 1300 students that receive free breakfast and lunch. They are good kids coming from hard working families. Many of them are first generation Americans and excited at the chance to continue their education.

My Project

My students will use these ChromeBooks to use a computer based reading program to help them improve their reading. This program will increase their academic skills along with their writing skills. This program will help to make learning exciting and attainable.

My students are in need of eight Chromebooks.

These eight Chromebooks will help my students use a computer based reading program. This reading program will help my students become better readers and writers. It will help them increase their vocabulary and all their academic skills.
