Help me give my students back some hope!Our classroom was burglarized!!! Unfortunately, someone took three student iPads, the teacher Ipad as well as other items. This has dampened our learning spirit but hopefully not for long!
As a teacher in a low income/high poverty school district, my students deal with several challenges. It is hard to watch their struggles without reaching out to help.
My students experience so many roadblocks on their learning path and need to practice their skills with available technology.
Since many are second language learners, the ability to write, do math and practice skills to mastery should always be available. They are getting great at typing skills and story composition. We have lost the stored student writing with the stolen iPads but are happy to start filling up a new one as soon as possible.
The iPads were such a great help with extra practice on multiplication, cursive, ELA, projects, and ELD applications. My hope is to allow students to learn with the technology that they had which was a ratio of two to one iPad. The loss of three iPads makes a sad dent in the day to day working of the class since six students are impacted. Help send a message to the thieves that they cannot stop our work for too long!
I want to replace their hope in the kindness of people. They need to know that there are good people in the world who can help. I want to replace what I can from the burglary to get them back to our normal routine.
We use the iPads for the green screen projects , various applications for learning mastery, journaling, and Accelerated Reader.
We also tape and partner read to each other.
They have a hard time accepting that someone would take their iPads . Their hard work is stored within computers that have be taken and basically have vanished. I want to restore normalcy to their routine.
