Today, technology is a key factor in every classroom. Gone are the textbook lesson days, the chalkboard, and the worksheets. Almost all of our lessons use some form of technology to teach our curriculum. We have become very dependent on our use of digital resources.
We are an intermediate school with students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade.
I teach English, math, social studies, and science to 25 sixth graders in a self-contained classroom. My class is a mixture of all ability levels. Some students are gifted, reading at the high school level, while some students are very low level readers. I also teach one special needs child who goes to another class for reading assistance.
I need a laptop in my classroom to connect with our school projector. At the present time, I have a smart board that does not function correctly because my classroom computer is outdated. I am unable to use the current programs to present much of our curriculum. Our math curriculum is a program called "Digits" and I am unable to present the math videos and current lessons because my computer is outdated.
A laptop will also provide a wealth of resources for my students.
Your donation will provide the technology our class needs to use the proper applications to present our curriculum.
A laptop will help me to engage my students in each lesson, by using the current educational tools.
