Light Up Our Learning!

The Description

With these funds I will purchase a DELL laptop computer and a rechargeable battery for classroom student usage.  My students need practice opportunities utilizing our district's approved and purchased software programs including:  Grolier Online databases, TrueFlix, MackinVIA, Scholastic Reading Counts, Scholastic Reading Inventory, Tumblebooks, and TyperInstructorWeb.  Additionally, my students will interact within the MobyMax software program.  MobyMax provides math, reading, writing, and language practice skills for students at their individual instructional level.  Students can earn game time and reward badges within MobyMax.  Also, my students will connect, collaborate, complete, and reflect concerning academia within our classroom community group of Edmodo.  Edmodo is an innovative and safe social media site connecting teachers, students, and parents.

Technology is here to stay.  Educators must strive to teach students in a digital method, because they live in a digital world.  My fifth grade students need additional, purposeful, instructional, individualized, and engaging practice opportunities with technology in order to become the successful problem solvers, communicators, collaborators, and developers of tomorrow!

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal I will continue seeking crowdfunding opportunities, developing and submitting grant applications, and entering eligible contests to secure the total funds needed to purchase this DELL laptop and rechargeable battery for the benefit of my 21st century students!

Colton's Steak House and Grill kindly hosted a PledgeCents Spirit Night Fundraiser for my classroom project!  Ten percent of the total sales between 4-8 p.m. were donated towards "Light Up Our Learning!"  It was an awesome opportunity for my students and their families to enjoy a dinner together at a restaurant that was supporting their learning!  Several of my extended family members and friends also joined my family and patronized Colton's on this special evening!  Colton's Steak House and Grill generously donated almost $300 towards our project!  We are so thankful for their interest and support of our learning environment!!
