This is my second year of teaching at a bilingual school. I teach a wonderful group of 3rd graders. On top of being absolutely adorably wonderful and eager learners they are also soooo thankful for any little thing, such as .50 cent pencil boxes I hand out to each one at the beginning of the year. With that said my request is for a laptop computer for student use. My students all live in the MacArthur Park Area of Los Angeles. Only one out of every twenty students have a computer at home. In addition, we do not have a computer lab at our school. The only time my students touch a computer is when they must take a reading comprehension assessment on a computer. The first time my students did this, they did not even now where the ENTER key was on the keyboard! I really would like to have a computer in the class so that I may load young student software. This computer with the software loaded would function as our "computer station." I received a "Kidspiration" software disk with their English Language Development Program. "Kidspiration" was created for K-5 learners and it provides an easy way to apply the proven principles of visual learning. Students build graphic organizers by combining pictures, text and spoken words to represent thoughts and information. Unfortunately, I cannot tap into the power of this software because I do not have a computer from which to run the program. The reason I ask for a laptop is because In our VERY small classroom in our VERY small school, space is limited. Hence my request for a laptop rather than a desktop computer. I can't tell you how happy you would make my little angels if they had computer to learn on. Their little eyes would sparkle!
