My Students

In first grade, one of the most important literacy centers is my computer center. Unfortunately, I am down to one working computer. First graders are great at many things but sharing isn't always one of them. Two more working computers would make my computer center awesome for my students!

My class is full of 27 enthusiastic first graders.

We are a public charter school that focuses on performing and visual arts. We accept a variety of students and the program is free though parent involvement hours are required. Our school is a great place where kids can be themselves and be accepted for who they are. Our students are also required to perform community service so they really learn to care about other people and our community.

My Project

These computers will provide my students with the opportunity to practice reading skills while small group instruction is taking place. They can also be used for intervention for struggling students. Technology is a great way to improve academic instruction. Working computers are a necessity in today's classroom, and I know my students would be so excited to have the opportunity to use them.

Our school has amazing opportunities in dance, music, and art but that doesn't leave money to improve our technology.

This would make a real difference in my academic program and my students' lives!
