My Students

Imagine being able to utilize a computer to access all the wonderful learning games and activities available in cyber land with just one switch of the on button. Having a laptop computer for our classroom will enable my students to open up this window of learning.

Most of my students are English Language Learners from low income homes.

My students are wonderful. My students are excited about learning and love school. I want my students to learn to their fullest potential. I want them to always stay excited and committed to learning.

My Project

I would like to have a computer station where students could use during center time. My students love the activities on the computer. However the computers that we have now are very old and outdated. They seldom work. Students need to know how to use the computer because keeping up with technology is a must for their generation. There are so many wonderful educational sites to enhance literacy and math skills. This computer would be used for this purpose. Students would use the laptop computer during center time daily.

Having a laptop to use during center time will increase language, math, and reading skills.

There are so many fun, intriguing and motivating learning programs students will be able to use. Furthermore, students will also stay current with technology by having a computer in their classroom.
