My Students

Gentle, intelligent, motivated, and inspiring...these are just a few words to describe my first-graders. I teach at a Title I, low-income school. More than half of my class are English Language Learners. My students come from all over the world. I have students from Guatemala, Mexico, India, China, and Eritrea! Even though they all have unique backgrounds and experiences, they all have a right to learn. I have a homeroom class that I teach most of the day. I also team-teach with another teacher in first-grade. I teach writing to both classes. My students are extremely compassionate and caring towards each other. They go out of their way to make new friends feel welcome in our classroom.

My students love to come to school and learn!

No matter what they bring to my class, they are valued and loved. First-graders have an abundance of energy and positive attitudes. They make me a better teacher every day with their bright smiles and their eagerness to learn something new. I could not be more proud of the students I teach.

My Project

The Kindle Fire Tablets I am requesting will be used in reading and writing to create authentic learning opportunities for my students. I teach writing to two classes of first graders. Therefore, 48 students will benefit from this technology! They will use the tablets to present their writing pieces through apps like Chatterpix. They will also use the tablets to research information to add to their non-fiction writing pieces.

Granting students access to technology devices will provide them with real-world experiences in the classroom.

In reading, students will read e-books on the Kindle Fire Tablets during independent and guided reading. They will also use apps such as Teach Your Monster To Read, EPIC, and Duck Duck Moose Reading. These are research-based apps to improve student understanding in reading. These tablets will be used every day in multiple educational ways!
