We Need Laptops in Our Vacation Home!

My students need four laptop computers for our classroom to be able to practice typing, take tests and learn math facts.

My Students

The first word we defined as a class in our temporary building this year was 'persevere', and this is now our class motto, because we work hard to finish problems even when they are hard.

Our school serves a wide, diverse population including immigrant and refugee families with over 20 languages spoken at home.

We are all bought together with the common goal of wanting to learn together in the classroom, but not all of us have experience with using computers at home.

My Project

All of our state mandated testing in fourth grade is taken on the computer. We are currently on vacation in a temporary school building for two years while our home is being renovated, but our temporary school does not have the capacity to run individual desktop computers in each classroom. This means that we do not have the ability to work with technology on a daily basis. We are not able to take reading comprehension tests, or do some multiplication practice, or simply become comfortable with how a keyboard and mouse on a computer work. With these small laptops, we will be able to gain invaluable experience with laptops with keyboards like those the kids will use when they are testing. We will also be able to conduct online project research and math practice, as well as type up our stories.

These computers will allow us to be more experienced and ready when testing season comes around.

They will also allow for an extra dimension to our classroom activities, and will help us to be able to do research projects during the year too.
