Make 5th Grade an E-Classroom!

I am a 5th Grade Teacher working in an amazing Title I school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.  At first glance, my school looks like it has everything, from classical instruments, to art supplies, to books.  However, unlike their wealthy peers, my students have very little access to technology in the classroom due to a lack of funding.

With your gracious donations, my goal is to purchase 20 Chromebooks to transform my classroom into an E-Classroom fit for the 21st Century. 
Funds will go towards:
-a Chromebook for each student to use
-a charging cart to keep the laptops safe and fueled for work time each day
-Headphones to enable students to access audio content

I will be setting up Google Classroom for my students, meaning they will all receive a class email account and be able to type assignments on Google Docs.  I'll be able to see them typing in real time and offer quick writing feedback.  For Social Studies and Science, students will be able to do research on the laptops online and make Google Slides presentations to share their ideas. In Math, Chromebooks would mean we could utilize many excellent Math websites to tailor instruction to each students' needs.

I'd like to turn paper Writing projects like this, into typing experiences on Google Docs!
The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to the power of using technology in the classroom.  With your donations, you could help project my classroom into the 21st Century and close the opportunity gap for my students!

Thank you for helping my students be all they can be!
