Teaching kindergarten is such an exciting and fulfilling job. Although it is tough, I love all of them so much! 100% of my students receive free lunches. Our school is in a critical needs area and is a Title I school. Most of my students have no help at home, killed or estranged parents, and many are raised by other family members. My class loves to learn, but we have limited resources in technology. Science has been added into a mandatory block with math and we do not have a curriculum for either subject, so it’s a “find what you can use kind of thing”. This can’t be done without technology. I want for my class to have the advantages of being taught with up-to-date resources in math and science along with learning how to use technology, since all of our testing is computers based. I have ELL (English Language Learner) students, speech students, and inclusion students. Each student has their own individual need and learning style, but they all need to have access to use computers and technology, since this is their future, especially in math and science. My students can’t wait to learn, go home and tell someone!
Having Chromebooks in my class will help my students through use as a learning center. These Chromebooks will also be useful for extra interventions for my lower leveled students. It will help all students practice skills while meeting all their needs. In turn this will help them on lessons that will be on state tests. My classroom had 5 computers and 3 were removed. Students statewide are mandated to take standardized tests, yet, taking computers from classes doesn’t help much. The 2 headphones I have are falling apart and we need new ones. My students need internet to help with bringing information to them! We do not have books for Math or Science! Please Help!
