Voices of Tomorrow Need to Be Heard

Help me give my students a portable speaker in order to give class presentations. Our class also needs a color printer in order to create their written reports and graphs.

My Students

I teach fifth grade in a Title I school in Southern California. My students are inquisitive and eager to learn and consist of English Language Learners and newcomers. Many of my students struggle in coming to school with the adequate supplies and resources for them to be successful. Although the majority of my students struggle at home, they have big dreams and are hopeful for a brighter future. They come to school ready to learn and love participating in science lessons.

My Project

Engaging students is more difficult each and every day. By adding these resources in my classroom, it will engage even my most difficult students. A speaker will be used so my students' can practice their presentation skills. A printer will give my students' the much needed exposure to technology and its various uses.

By adding these resources to my class, it will give my students' an edge in today's competitive world.

My students will use the speaker to give oral presentations on projects and listen to educational videos. We can also use it during P.E. activities. The printer will be used only by my students to print their reports, including pictures and graphs for their various reports through out the year.
