I work as a preschool, special education, developmental, classroom teacher. All of my students have a delay in their development, including but not limited to social skills, fine and gross motor development, self-help skills, speech/language and/or cognitive delays.
All children in my classroom are dependents of United States soldiers, and over half come from homes of low socioeconomic status.
Our focus is on social and emotional health and well-being of children, motor development and preparing students for kindergarten and beyond. Learning is hands-on, minds-on engagement in our program that is play-based and full of self-discovery.
My students are growing up in a society filled with technology wherever they go. Phones, laptops, iPads, tv, etc. Not all students have access to latest trends in technology, especially for young children.
Providing students with an iApple - 10.5-Inch iPad Pro with Wi-Fi - 256GB - Space Gray will provide them to access of many apps and age appropriate educational, interactive, engaging and hands-on learning activities and material they would never have the opportunity to explore and learn from at home.
One program in particular is OSMO. A Hands on minds on approach to learning mathematical skills, fine motor and writing, literacy and music and movement.
From a young age, children learn how to work with, explore and care for materials and equipment. Early learning experience sets the stage for lifelong learners. Provided the opportunity to use an iPad, my students will develop a natural curiosity and wonder about how things work, wanting to learn more and advance in their skills.
