Mrs. Smiljanich from Chicago IL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an Apple IPad with a case, a barcode scanner and an adapter.
This past school year, my classroom was given books to help support their learning and eager reading! As a class, we organized the books by guided reading level and genre. We also scanned them into an online classroom library checkout system so that we do not lose the books (especially the well sought after ones)!
Our school lacks a library and so our classroom library has to serve the needs of all of my students regardless of what those needs may be.
With our large city focusing less on pubic libraries, it is a struggle for my students to always have access to high interest books. Our number one struggle in our classroom library has been the disappearance of popular books.
Creating life long learners is inevitably every teachers dream. For me, that is my end goal, but my more immediate one is to first and foremost create readers. Readers, more often than not, become life long learners.
Although we live in a major city, most neighborhood libraries are lacking; lacking in books, technology and open for limited hours.
This shortage of library support means less access for student support services and one less safe place for students to go to outside of school hours. Having the IPad and scanner will help students to become more independent and responsible in checking out books from our personal classroom library.
The quick access to our online classroom library systems means less books lost, more access to books for my students and more importantly, it frees up my time to provide students with more academic support.
