Here was Mrs. Crim’s project.
We were one of seven donors.
My students need Chromebooks to help expand their educational needs. The benefits of computers include improved motor skills, increased math skills, increased creativity, and higher scores on standardized tests.
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!
Our school is nestled in Southern Illinois, home of Superman.
We have had a lot of factories that have closed. Now, with many of them closed, our families often struggle to find employment and opportunity.
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
The use of Chromebooks is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math. Using the workshop model in math, students come to the rug with Chromebooks for guided practice and to record modeled strategies. The Chromebooks allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
