TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need additional chromeboks so they may work on them as a class.
My school is very diverse. We have some middle class families from an Air Force base near us to almost 34 percent low income or poverty level families. Our families consist of the traditional type, to foster care, single parent, multi families living under one roof, to students living with extended family members.
I love my school because we have a true school family feeling.
As teachers, we are encouraged to love our students and support them. They receive smiles, encouragement, education, and hugs when needed.
Unfortunately with our states current financial issues we do not have any extra funding. I have a flexible seating classroom which means I do not have traditional desks or seats. Giving the students options of different seats and workspaces help students who have attention problems and allows others to learn and practice self awareness when it comes to their body and its energy level. Unfortunately, though it has broken my pocketbook and now I don't have extra personal funds for other projects or to continue adding flexible seating options.
Please support my classroom in any way you can. I promise your donation will make a difference in the everyday life of my students.
Currently my students only have 8 chromebooks in our room. These 8 chromebooks also sometimes must be used by 2 other second grade classes. That means not only can my class not all be on chromebooks at the same time so we can do projects together but also neither can the other second grade classes. As of the end of last school year 60 second grade students were sharing only 28 chromebooks.
I was very lucky to have received a chromebook charging cart last year so I could house 8 chromebooks when the other classes did not need them.
Now I'm looking to fill the cart slowly with 12 chromebooks. This will not only help me but will also mean that when my cart is full the other 2 classes will have more chromebooks that their students may use. By helping me fill my chromebook cart you are helping 2 other classes at the same time.
Our reading and math curriculum is full of technology that my students do not always get a turn to use because of the limited amount of chromebooks per class. Also because we have many low income families not all students have access to internet or technology at home. By me having chromebooks that belong only to our class I can ensure that my students will get the training they need in technology but also can do many more interesting and creative projects. Please help us!
