#GivingTuesday: Technology for Talented 3rd Graders

Help KDP fund a Classroom Teacher Grant for “Technology for Talented 3rd Graders”, a Classroom Manipulatives project by Stephanie Cancglin. She teaches 3rd grade and has 3 years of teaching experience.

Students will use these Chromebooks to amplify our learning by infusing it with technology at many points throughout our school day. For example, students will utilize Google Classroom to gather group research, collaborate across projects and peer edit writing. Students will use the Chromebooks to create visuals for data collection, improve our literacy skills by reading online articles, and enhance their skills at composing writing responses on the computer.

Then, students must compose articulate written responses to their reading. These Chromebooks will allow my students to practice these imperative skills all year long.

How the $150 would be spent:

The $150 grant would be used to purchase one Lenovo IdeaPad. This chromebook, plus the donation through DonorsChoose, will be the driving force needed for my goal of a 1:1 device to student ratio to be reached in my 3rd grade classroom. The grant will allow my students to become successful in the 21st century.
