Thank you to everybody that supported our class project! The desktop computer came today!!! Although it was the wrong brand, I am grateful because this one is pretty similar. I contacted DonorsChoose.org about the mixup, and they let me know that the other one may have been out of stock, so they sent this one. I’m currently setting up the computer as well as installing Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010. I’m very excited to get it set up in the classroom for the students to use after Labor Day! Next step, thank you letters as well as a few photos for the donors that helped make this happen…
Our class books came from DonorsChoose.org today! A few weeks ago, I put together a project to receive two classroom sets of books, The Pearl & The Giver. I’m so thankful to the people that donated as well as helped to get these for my class! Those 9 donors will be hearing from us soon;)
I’ve created a classroom project request at DonorsChoose.org because I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to reach their full potential. The project entails one classroom computer to be used for completing homework, researching information for a project, or simply typing an essay paper. This access to technology will potentially better equip students for the future. Unfortunately the future is no longer just written, it’s typed, it’s coded, it’s on Facebook, it’s on Twitter, it’s on Instagram, it’s reported via online news outlets, it’s blogged about, and without access to all the previously mentioned, the future can seem out of reach. Please help me make that reach a little easier.
I’m asking for donations of any size to help my students. For the next week (7/5 to 7/12), any donation you make to my project will be doubled via DonorsChoose.org! If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your donation will brighten my students’ school year, and you’ll get photos and thank yous from our class.
I am attempting to expand students minds via higher level literature. Do you remember what it was like the first time you read a book that you couldn’t put down? My students have only begun to discover books that capture their imaginations. Please help me help them with their fantastic journey through literature. My students need a class set of “The Giver” (30 Books) and a class set of “The Pearl” (30 Books). Reading is like a passport for a child to travel as far as their imagination will take them. Please help my students collect a few stamps in their booklet. The Pearl & The Giver are excellent books with a myriad of themes, characters, and life lessons for my students to learn from.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Even if you cannot donate, please pass this email on to those that you think would be interested. Remember, every drop in the bucket helps, so if it’s $5 or $10, that would be awesome!
