Mrs. Wilson from Raceland KY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need six Chromebooks to access engaging, interactive games that teach important reading and math skills.
My first graders enter the classroom every day with lots of potential and excitement to learn. Many, however, need the confidence to become skilled readers and mathematicians, a disposition that is imperative for college-career ready individuals. What's our remedy? "We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney
Teaching at a Title I school means the majority of my students come from single-parent homes or homes where both parents are required to work just to keep the lights on.
Often, in these low-income households, students do not get opportunities for enrichment. Finding creative ways to explore what we are learning increases confidence, helps students make connections between ideas, and develops a deep understanding of content.
Young children learn through play and in our class, we play to learn. Learning to read and becoming proficient mathematicians is our goal. We are continually looking for creative, fun ways to practice these important skills. "Mrs. Wilson, what game are we going to play today?" is something my students ask daily. Making learning fun has ignited a love for learning in my students that needs to be fed.
To create an engaging learning environment, I want to provide my six and seven-year-old students with Chromebooks to play interactive games that teach important reading and math skills. Imagine a first grader playing a video game against their first-grade friends while learning phonics skills at the same time. Students will love to race their classmates in real time as they practice important math skills.
What better way for students to learn than bringing reading and math into their world.
Struggling students will build confidence as they have the same success as their peers due to the games being tailored to each student's learning needs. Students who don't have access to computers at home will be exposed to technology and learn 21st-century skills that are necessary for future employment. They will develop socially and emotionally by engaging their peers. Most importantly, these students will learn to read and become proficient mathematicians which will give them the confidence to succeed as college-career ready individuals.
