The Right Way, Is the Technology Way!

My students need a Dell laptop computer to increase technology in my reading and math curriculum.

My Students

Many of my students have not been exposed to technology. I have a wonderful group of special needs students between the ages of 3 thru 5 years of age. In this every changing world of technology ,I think it is extremely important to introduce my students to this skill at a very young age.

As a Pre-K teacher, it is my daily goal to create a loving, safe, fun classroom for my students.

One of the ways I do this is by providing a frustration-free work environment where children can build skills and confidence! I teach a wonderful group of special needs students in a low social economical area. Our school services Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Bethune offers a rigorous curriculum which not only provides all students with instruction through the Common Core State Standards, but every student is exposed to vocal and instrumental music, visual arts and technology.

My Project

Basic isn't good enough , mastery must be pursued! Please help my students to reach the mastery level. Having a laptop will allow a whole new exploration in our classroom! We dream of individual or small collaboration groups exploring the Internet to individualize instruction, record and make our own stories, use websites that will help increase our understanding of math skills and reading fluency... the ideas are endless!

We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” – David Warlick This project will allow my students to engage in learning at their individual levels in a way that meets their needs and doesn't compare their abilities to others.

Laptops would also allow my students to have access to the computer based math and literacy interventions.
