Donor’s Choose TECHNOLOGY PROJECT- Your help is needed!

Hi Everyone!  I need your help!  Our team is raising money for a set of Chromebooks for our math classes.  How exciting! This way, I won’t have to reserve them from the library, but we can use them any time we need them…Which will actually be close to a daily basis some weeks. Plus, Mr. Clemons, Mrs. Polizos, and our ELA teachers will be able to use them as well. We will have the Chromebooks in our classroom at our disposal.  I can’t wait for all of the cool things we will do in class, including graphing, submitting work through Google Classroom, review games such a Kahoot and Quizizz, research, and so much more.  As a teacher, I’m excited about this because Chromebooks give me instant feedback of where my students are…”Are my kids understanding the material or not? How am I going to help them?” Then, I can personalize instruction for struggling learners and give opportunities to enrich those students who have mastered the material.

Please help us reach this goal.  Each of your core subject teachers is raising money for 8 Chromebooks that we will put together in one cart for the math classes.

Here’s where you come in:

Share my Donors Choose Project Page with your family and friends. You can physically share it with them, or repost using Facebook or other social media, or email it to them.

PLEASE SHARE:   Mrs. Jackson’s Donors Choose Chromebook Page  or if you want the actual website… https://www.donorschoose.org/project/embracing-technology-to-enhance-math-ins/2285191/.   Either way, just PLEASE SHARE!

Be sure to share the PROMO Code with them:  LIFTOFF.  If they put in this promo code, Donors Choose will match any donation up to $50 for the first 7 days. THIS IS HUGE for us to meet our goal!  Also, be sure to tell them to uncheck the box that will give 15% to the website. We want and need ALL of our donations.  🙂
