Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students come from a myriad of cultural backgrounds. I have students whose heritages span the globe from Egypt, Lebanon Korea, China, India, and more! Our school has the highest number of special needs classes in the district. Our class is the buddy class to the first grade Special Day Class at our school. My students are language and social models for their buddies. In addition, our class and our SDC buddy class are mainstreamed for PE, science, computers, library, and music. I am so proud of my students. They come to school ready for the rigor of thinking and learning!
The 2 Samsung Chromebooks will help my students as they engage in 21st century thinking. They will use web-based tools to create and show their learning. For example, students will be able to access our class Google Drive and create a presentation about their thinking and learning of the water cycle. They will research to find what they need to create their presentations and therefore be able to communicate their learning through images, videos, and text. This presentation will be shared beyond the classroom walls which provides an authentic audience to their creations. Our class Google Drive will allow us to collect and house their digital projects. My 1st grade scholars will also use the Samsung Chromebooks to develop and practice their computer science skills. Our school district has recently adopted Tynker which is a web-based program that is aligned to computer science standards.
