Mrs. Boyd from King George VA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology-Success!

My students need five tablets with protective cases to immerse themselves into mathematical practices on their own - beyond the classroom walls - to discover and build their skills.

My Students

I will be teaching a new crew of excited, curious, and outgoing 6th graders this upcoming year. Our elementary school is very family-oriented and has many active parents taking advantage of being a part in their child's learning experience. This fosters an atmosphere of love and support. While there is this level of support, my students still try to challenge themselves daily in order to grow.

The students quickly learn how to use technology; and as soon-to-be young adults, they must be prepared to dive into a world filled with technological tools to help them engage with others and reach their own goals.

My Project

At a school that has a minimum amount of electronics available for students to enhance their learning, it truly breaks my heart. There are countless apps and websites in which students can further their understanding of curriculum and practice skills.

As an on-grade level and inclusion teacher, I must break up my students based on their individual needs.

Some of them need more instruction and scaffolding, while others hit the ground running with any topic given to them.

I will be using my tablets in multiple ways. One day we may have a group of five students, on the tablets, working on Desmos practicing a current skill while the rest of the students are being taught an extra mini lesson to ensure understanding.

Another day, we may be doing a class activity with devices. Some of my students do not have the funds at home to be able to have a device of their own, so these tablets will be stand-ins so that those students still have the opportunity to participate in these activities.
