My students are energetic, smart, and thoughtful fourth graders who are eager to learn new things everyday. My class consists of students with mixed abilities, students with IEPs and ENL students. I work in a Title 1 school in one of the poorest districts in New York. Many students live in shelters, take care of siblings, and have very little home support. In my class 100% of students receive free lunch. For many of them school is the safest place for them to be.
Despite all of the challenges my students face they are eager and excited to come to school and learn every day.
Having a classroom iPad will allow different structures of learning in my classroom. I will download educational apps for various math practice skills for an interactive math center, which would allow me provide activities for both my highest performing and most struggling students.
My project will make a difference because these students are the digital natives.
These students are growing up around technology yet they lack the opportunity to use technology for educational purposes.
My classroom is not yet at the technological level to meet the needs of my students. Every donation will help close the gap a little bit more.
