My students need 2 iPads to help them view and record math and science lessons.
Every student deserves the best we have to offer! My students with dyslexia have an extremely difficult time viewing/recording information from the board. iPad technology would provide them with "i's" that will engage them in the learning process so that all my students can experience success!
I have a diverse classroom of students who have different ability levels.
Several of my students were not able to successfully pass the Texas STAAR test last year in Math. We are a public school within a very large district that is continuously growing. The district is dominantly residential; therefore, we have limited financial resources.
Sitting in a classroom where the English language seems like a foreign language can be extremely frustrating. Most of us take for granted the ability to read and comprehend the written word. However, for students with a learning disability such as dyslexia, it can be overwhelming. Consequently, many of these students "check out." They may display disruptive behaviors or engage in those that prevent the learning process. I feel that with the iPads, I would be able to excite my students and provide a means for them to participate in math and science lessons. They will be able to view the lessons that I prepare for them and follow my instructions during the lessons with visual aids and applications. They will also be able to take notes and use it as a tool for reinforcing the concepts and skills taught. There are many applications currently available that support classroom learning, and I want to take advantage of this technology so that my students can experience success.
Several of my students were not able to successfully pass the state assessment test and have difficulty keeping pace with the current curriculum.
In a diverse classroom such as mine, I feel it is my responsibility to seek any available assistance to engage all my students and make sure that each one has the best possibility to experience success this year. Additionally, I expect to provide the tools necessary to keep my students excited about learning so that they become lifelong learners.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
